Disraeli, Benjamin

28.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

29.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

30.
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.

31.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

Beecher, Henry Ward

37.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

38.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

39.
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

40.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

41.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

42.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.
