Best Quotes about Character
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
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.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
A man's character is his fate.

Reynolds, Sir Joshua
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
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.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
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.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
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.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
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
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
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.

Sivananda, Sri Swami
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
