Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

Forster, Edward M.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

Gaulle, Charles De

Dyke, Henry Van

If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Character development is the aim of education.

Richter, Jean Paul
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
