Best Quotes about Character
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
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
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
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.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
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.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
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.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
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
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.
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
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
A rich man has no need of character.
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.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
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.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
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.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Character is simply habit long continued.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Integrity has no need of rules.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
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.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
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.
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.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
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?
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
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.
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.
