Character

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.
- Maurois, Andre

Best Quotes about Character

1.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

3.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
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

5.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

9.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

10.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

11.
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

12.
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.

13.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

14.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

15.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

16.
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.
Maurois, Andre

17.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

18.
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

19.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

20.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

21.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

22.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

23.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

24.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

25.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

26.
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.

27.
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

28.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

29.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

30.
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

31.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

32.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

33.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

34.
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.

35.
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.

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

38.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

40.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

41.

Bonaparte, Napoleon

42.
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.

43.

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

48.
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

49.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

50.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard
