Character

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.
- Rohn, Jim

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

2.
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

3.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

4.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

5.
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.
Churchill, Winston

6.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

7.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

8.
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

9.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

12.
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.

13.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

14.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

15.
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.

16.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

17.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

18.
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.
Richard Greenberg

19.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

20.
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

21.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

22.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

23.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

24.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

25.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

26.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

27.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

28.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

29.
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!.
James, William

30.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

31.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

32.
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

33.
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

A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

35.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

36.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

37.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

38.
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.
Miller, Arthur

Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio
