Best Quotes about Character
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.

Bulger, William M.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?

Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is our destiny.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
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.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

Washington, Booker T.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
