Best Quotes about Character
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
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.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Character is victory organized.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
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.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
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.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
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
A rich man has no need of character.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
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.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
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
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.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
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.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
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.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
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.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
