Best Quotes about Character
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.

The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
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
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.
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
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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 in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
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;
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
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.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character is a victory, not a gift.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
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.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
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
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
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.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
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.
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.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
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.
