Character

Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
- Lippmann, Walter

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

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

4.
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

5.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

6.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

7.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

8.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

9.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

10.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

11.
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.

12.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

13.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

14.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

15.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

16.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

18.
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.

19.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

20.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

21.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

22.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

26.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

27.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

28.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

29.
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.

30.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

31.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

32.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

34.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

35.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

36.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

37.
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

38.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

39.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

40.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

41.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

42.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

43.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

44.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb
