Best Quotes about Character
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
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.
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
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
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.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
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.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
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.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
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.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
A rich man has no need of character.
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
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
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
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
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
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
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;
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.
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.
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
Character is simply habit long continued.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]

The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
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.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Character is a victory, not a gift.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
