Character quotes
Character
Writing is a question of finding a certain rhythm. I compare it to the rhythms of jazz. Much of the time life is a sort of rhythmic progression of three characters. If one tells oneself that life is like that, one feels it less arbitrary.

- Sagan, Francoise
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
A signature always reveals a man's character- and sometimes even his name.

- Evan Esar
The 1990s customer expects service to be characterized by fast and efficient computer-based systems.

- Cuthbert, Steve
To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned man's character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours.

- Twain, Mark
Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

- Wooden, John
It is a characteristic of all movements and crusades that the psychopathic element rises to the top.

- Lindner, Robert
Character is more important than intelligence for success.

- Beaux, Gilberte
Humility is not my forte, and whenever I dwell for any length of time on my own shortcomings, they gradually begin to seem mild, harmless, rather engaging little things, not at all like the staring defects in other people's characters.

- Halsey, Margaret
It is energy -- the central element of which is will -- that produces the miracle that is enthusiasm in all ages. Everywhere it is what is called force of character and the sustaining power of all great action.

- Smiles, Samuel
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.

- Babson, Roger
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.

- Joan Didion
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.

- Maurois, Andre
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.

- W. Somerset Maugham
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

Here is an artificial city which has been pumped up under forced draught, inflated like a balloon, stuffed with rural humanity like a goose with corn...endeavoring to eat up this too rapid avalanche of anthropoids, the sunshine metropolis heaves and strains, sweats and becomes pop-eyed, like a young boa constrictor trying to swallow a goat. It has never imparted an urban character to its incoming population for the simple reason that it has never had any character to impart. On the other hand, the place has the manners, culture and general outlook of a huge country village.

- Morrow Mayo
The most important ingredient we put into any relationship is not what we say or what we do, but what we are. And if our words and our actions come from superficial human relations techniques (the Personality Ethic) rather than from our own inner core (the Character Ethic), others will sense that duplicity. We simply won't be able to create and sustain the foundation necessary for effective interdependence.

- Covey, Stephen R.
Our mightiest feelings are always those which remain most unspoken. The most intense lovers and the greatest poets have generally, I think, written very little personal love-poetry, while they have shown in fictitious characters a knowledge of the passion too painfully intimate to be spoken of in the first person.

- MS. 1843.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.

- Disraeli, Benjamin
In our brief national history we have shot four of our presidents, worried five of them to death, impeached one and hounded another out of office. And when all else fails, we hold an election and assassinate their character.

- O'Rourke, P. J.
