Best Quotes about Character
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
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!.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Character is a victory, not a gift.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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 cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
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.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
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.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
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
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
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.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
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.
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.
