Character

As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
- Cicero, Marcus T.

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

2.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

6.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

7.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

8.
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

9.
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

10.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

11.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

12.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

13.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

14.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

15.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

16.
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

17.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

19.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

20.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

21.
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

22.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

23.
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

24.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

25.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

26.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

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

28.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

29.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

30.
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

31.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

32.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

33.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

34.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

35.
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

36.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

37.
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.

38.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

39.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

40.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

41.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

42.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

43.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

44.
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

45.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

46.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

47.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

48.
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

49.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

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.
