They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

12.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

13.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

16.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

18.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

21.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

22.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

23.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

24.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

25.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

26.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

27.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

28.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

30.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

31.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

32.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

33.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

34.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

35.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

36.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

37.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

38.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

39.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

40.

Babson, Roger

44.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

45.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

46.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

47.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

48.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

49.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

50.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
