Best Quotes about Character
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.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
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.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
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.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.
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
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders
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.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
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.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
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
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther
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.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
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
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
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!.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
