Best Quotes about Character
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
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 - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
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.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Character development is the aim of education.
Character is our destiny.
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.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
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.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.
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.
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;
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
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.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
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
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
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
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
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
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.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.
