Best Quotes about Character

1.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

2.
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.
Francis, Clarence

3.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

4.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

5.
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.
Heraclitus

You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

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

19.
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

20.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

21.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

22.
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.
Miller, Arthur

23.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

24.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

25.
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.
Akhenaton

26.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

27.
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

28.
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.

29.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson
