Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

2.
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

3.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

4.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

5.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

6.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

7.
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

8.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

9.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

10.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

11.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

12.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

13.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

14.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

15.
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.

16.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

17.
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.

18.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

19.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

20.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

21.
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

22.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

23.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

24.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

25.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

26.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

27.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

28.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

29.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

30.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

31.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

32.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

34.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

35.
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

36.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

37.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

38.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

39.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

40.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

41.
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

42.
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

43.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

44.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

45.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

46.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

47.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

50.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les
