Character quotes
Character
A man of character in peace is a man of courage in war.

- Sir James Glover
A man has no more character than he can command in a time of crisis.

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

Power is so characteristically calm, that calmness in itself has the aspect of strength.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
Altered opinions do not alter a man's character (or do so very little); but they do illuminate individual aspects of the constellation of his personality which with a different constellation of opinions had hitherto remained dark and unrecognizable.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.

- Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
No president in history has been more vilified or was more vilivied during the time he was President than Lincoln. Those who knew him, his secretaries, have written that he was deeply hurt by what was said about him and drawn about him, but on the other hand, Lincoln had the great strength of character never to display it, always able to stand tall and strong and firm no matter how harsh or unfair the criticism might be. These elements of greatness, of course, inspire us all today.

- Richard Nixon
Character is what you are in the dark.

- American Proverb
We falsely attribute to men a determined character - putting together all their yesterdays - and averaging them - we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support - it is worse than a large family - he is the silent poor indeed.

- Henry David Thoreau
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.

- Parkhurst, Charles H.
The author of genius does keep till his last breath the spontaneity, the ready sensitiveness, of a child, the "innocence of eye" that means so much to the painter, the ability to respond freshly and quickly to new scenes, and to old scenes as though they were new; to see traits and characteristics as though each were new-minted from the hand of God instead of sorting them quickly into dusty categories and pigeon-holing them without wonder or surprise; to feel situations so immediately and keenly that the word "trite" has hardly any meaning for him; and always to see "the correspondences between things" of which Aristotle spoke two thousand years ago.

- Dorothea Brande
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.

- Galbraith, John Kenneth
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

Reputation is what men and women think of us. Character is what God and the angels know of us.

- Paine, Thomas
Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fiber of character but strengthen it. Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.

- Buckham, James
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.

ZANY, n. A popular character in old Italian plays, who imitated with ludicrous incompetence the _buffone_, or clown, and was therefore the ape of an ape; for the clown himself imitated the serious characters of the play. The zany was progenitor to the specialist in humor, as we to-day have the unhappiness to know him. In the zany we see an example of creation; in the humorist, of transmission. Another excellent specimen of the modern zany is the curate, who apes the rector, who apes the bishop, who apes the archbishop, who apes the devil.

- Ambrose Bierce
There is nothing so fatal to character as half finished tasks.

- George, David Lloyd
A signature always reveals a man's character- and sometimes even his name.

- Evan Esar
