Best Quotes about Character
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
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!.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
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.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van
A rich man has no need of character.
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.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Character is simply habit long continued.
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.
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.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
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
Character development is the aim of education.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
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.
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
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.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
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.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.
