Best Quotes about Character
Character development is the aim of education.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
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.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
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
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
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.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham
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.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
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.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
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.
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.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
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.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
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?
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Character is victory organized.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
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.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
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.
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
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
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.
