Just because you are a character doesn't mean that you have character.

I grew up hearing this and just assumed Grandma Hartman made it up. However, I didn't realize until now that Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) was stealing her material.
Oh! what a tangled web we weave
When first we practise to deceive!
-from Marmion, Canto VI. Stanza 17.
