Best Quotes about Character
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
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
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
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.
Integrity has no need of rules.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
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.
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
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.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
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.

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.
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
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
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
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
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.
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.
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.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
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.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
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.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
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.

Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
