- Carlyle, Thomas

Best Quotes about Character

1.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

2.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

3.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

4.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

5.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

Keller, Helen

7.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

8.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

9.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

10.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

11.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

12.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

13.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

14.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

15.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

16.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

17.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

18.
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.

19.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

20.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

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

22.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

23.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

24.
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

25.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

26.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

27.
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

28.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

29.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

30.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

31.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

32.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

33.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

34.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

48.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
