Best Quotes about Character
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
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
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
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.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
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
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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!.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
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.
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?
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
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.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
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.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
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.
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.
