Best Quotes about Character
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
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
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
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.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
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.
Integrity has no need of rules.
A man's character is his fate.
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.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
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.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
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.
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
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
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 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.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De
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.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
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.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
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;
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Character development is the aim of education.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
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.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
