Best Quotes about Character
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
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.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
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.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
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.
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
Character is a victory, not a gift.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
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?
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.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
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
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
A man's character is his fate.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
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.
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
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
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
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
