Best Quotes about Character
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
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 is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is victory organized.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
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.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
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.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Integrity has no need of rules.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
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
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
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.
Character development is the aim of education.
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 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
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
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
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 I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
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
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
