Character quotes
The question now is: Can we understand our stupidity? This is a test of intellect, not of character.

- Fairbank, John King
I've never thought of my characters as being sad. On the contrary, they are full of life. They didn't choose tragedy. Tragedy chose them.

- Binoche, Juliette
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Many a man's reputation would not know his character if they met on the street.

- Elbert Hubbard
There are many kinds of smiles, each having a distinct character. Some announce goodness and sweetness, others betray sarcasm, bitterness and pride; some soften the countenance by their languishing tenderness, others brighten by their spiritual vivacity.

- Lavater, Johann Kaspar
Happiness must be cultivated. It is like character. It is not a thing to be safely let alone for a moment, or it will run to weeds.

- Phelps, Elizabeth Stuart
When you describe the miserable and unfortunate, and want to make the reader feel pity, try to be somewhat colder—that seems to give a kind of background to another’s grief, against which it stands out more clearly. Whereas in your story the characters cry and you sigh. Yes, be more cold. . . . the more objective you are, the stronger will be the impression you make.

- Anton Chekhov
All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one...characteristic we must posses if we are to face the future as finishers.

You gave him an opportunity of showing greatness of character and he did not seize it. He will never forgive you for that.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
Reputation is what men and women think of us. Character is what God and the angels know of us.

- Paine, Thomas
Nothing shows a man's character more than what he laughs at.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble

- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
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

- Arnold Toynbee
States are as the men, they grow out of human characters.

- Plato
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.

- Disraeli, Benjamin
I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have ? life itself.

- Anderson, Walter
It has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity.

- Alexander Hamilton
