Best Quotes about Character
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
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.

When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.

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.
Character is our destiny.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

Peter The Great
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
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
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
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
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
A rich man has no need of 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.
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.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.

Arran, Earl of

Thackeray, William M.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
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
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
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.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
