Character

Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
- Akhenaton

Best Quotes about Character

1.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

2.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

3.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

4.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

5.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

6.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

7.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

8.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

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.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

11.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

12.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

13.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

14.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

15.
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

16.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

17.
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.

18.
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.

19.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

20.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

21.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

22.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

24.
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

25.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

26.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

27.
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

28.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

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

30.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

31.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

32.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

33.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

34.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

35.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

36.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

37.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

38.
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

39.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

40.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

41.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

43.
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

44.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

45.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

46.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

47.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

48.
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

49.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

50.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
