It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
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.

3.
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

4.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

5.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham

6.
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

7.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

8.
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.
Confucius

9.
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.
Thomas, Isiah

10.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

11.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

12.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

13.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

14.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

15.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

16.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

17.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

18.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

19.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

20.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

21.
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.
Trotsky, Leon

22.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

23.
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

24.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

26.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

27.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

29.
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.

30.
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

31.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

32.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

33.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

34.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

35.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

36.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

37.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

38.
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

39.
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!.
James, William

40.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

41.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

42.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

43.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

44.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

45.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

46.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

47.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

48.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

49.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

50.
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.
Pandita, Saskya
