Best Quotes about Character

1.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

2.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Drummond, Henry

14.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

15.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

16.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
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

18.

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

26.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

27.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

28.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

29.
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

30.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

31.

King Jr. Martin Luther

32.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

33.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

34.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver
