Character quotes
Character
After Blood Simple, everybody thought I was from Texas. After Mississippi Burning, everybody thought I was from Mississippi and uneducated. After Fargo, everybody's going to think I'm from Minnesota, pregnant, and have blonde hair. I don't think you can ever completely transform yourself on film, but if you do your job well, you can make people believe that you're the character you're trying to be.

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

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
Every man has three characters—that which he exhibits, that which he has, and that which he thinks he has.

- Alphonse Karr
DISSEMBLE, v.i. To put a clean shirt upon the character . Let us dissemble. Adam

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

- Disraeli, Benjamin
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.

IMMORAL, adj. Inexpedient. Whatever in the long run and with regard to the greater number of instances men find to be generally inexpedient comes to be considered wrong, wicked, immoral. If man's notions of right and wrong have any other basis than this of expediency; if they originated, or could have originated, in any other way; if actions have in themselves a moral character apart from, and nowise dependent on, their consequences -- then all philosophy is a lie and reason a disorder of the mind.

- Ambrose Bierce
The sculptor will chip off all unnecessary material to set free the angel. Nature will chip and pound us remorselessly to bring out our possibilities. She will strip us of wealth, humble our pride, humiliate our ambition, let us down from the ladder of fame, will discipline us in a thousand ways, if she can develop a little character, Everything must give way to that. Wealth is nothing, position is nothing, fame is nothing, manhood is everything.

- Marden, Orison Swett
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.

- George Santayana
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.

- Drummond, Henry
The thought manifests as the word; The word manifests as the deed; The deed develops into habit; And habit hardens into character; So watch the thought and its ways with care, And let it spring from love Born out of concern for all beingsà As the shadow follows the body, As we think, so we become.

- Buddha
Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no others are, and to do what no other can do.

- William Ellery Channing
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.

- Francis Thompson
If all the gold in the world were melted down into a solid cube it would be about the size of an eight room house. If a man got possession of all that gold -- billions of dollars worth -- he could not buy a friend, character, peace of mind, clear conscience or a sense of eternity.

- Bunning, Charles F.
Your outlook upon life, your estimate of yourself, your estimate of your value are largely colored by your environment. Your whole career will be modified, shaped, molded by your surroundings, by the character of the people with whom you come in contact every day...

- Marden, Orison Swett
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.

- Bisset, Jacqueline
When we see men of worth, we should think of equaling them; when we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.

- Confucius
One of the strongest characteristics of genius is the power of lighting its own fire.

- Foster, John W.
When any one of our relations was found to be a person of a very bad character, a troublesome guest, or one we desired to get rid of, upon his leaving my house I ever took care to lend him a riding-coat, or a pair of boots, or sometimes a horse of small value, and I always had the satisfaction of finding he never came back to return them.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
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.

- Johann Kaspar Lavater
