Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
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

3.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

4.
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

5.
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

6.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

9.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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.
Maurois, Andre

11.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

12.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

13.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

14.
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.

15.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

16.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

17.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

18.
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

19.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

20.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

21.
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

22.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

23.
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.
Carlyle, Thomas

24.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

25.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

26.
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.
Keller, Helen

27.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

28.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

29.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

30.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

Baruch, Bernard M.

40.
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
