Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
- Akhenaton

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

3.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

4.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

5.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

6.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

7.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

8.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

9.
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.
Luther, John

10.
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

11.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

12.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

13.
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?
Eliot, George

14.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

15.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

16.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

17.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

18.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

19.
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.
Miller, Arthur

20.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

21.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

22.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

23.
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.
Richard Greenberg

24.
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.
Keller, Helen

25.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

26.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

27.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

29.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

30.
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

31.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

32.
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

33.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

34.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

35.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

36.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

37.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

38.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

39.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

40.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

41.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

42.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

43.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

44.
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.
Francis, Clarence

45.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

46.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

47.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

48.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

49.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

50.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon
