Best Quotes about Character
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.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
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.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Dyke, Henry Van
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
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is a victory, not a gift.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
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
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
