Best Quotes about Character
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
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.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
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
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
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.
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.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
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
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.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.

Elmer G. Letterman

Reynolds, Sir Joshua
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders
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.
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 another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
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.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.

Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
