Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
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

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

6.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

7.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

11.
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.

12.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

13.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

14.
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

15.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

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

17.
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.

18.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

19.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

20.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

21.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

22.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

24.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

25.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

26.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

27.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

28.
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

29.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

30.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

31.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

32.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

33.
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

34.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

35.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

36.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

37.
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

38.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

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
Virgil

41.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

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

48.
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

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