- Pandita, Saskya

Best Quotes about Character

1.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

2.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

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

Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

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

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

9.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

10.
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.

11.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Bulger, William M.

Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

16.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

Hume, David

Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

20.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

21.
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

22.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

23.
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.

24.
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

25.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

26.
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

27.
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.
Confucius

28.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

29.
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.

30.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

31.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

32.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya
