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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

3.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

4.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

9.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

10.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

11.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

12.
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

13.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

14.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham

15.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

16.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

17.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

18.
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

19.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

20.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

21.
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.

22.
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.
Francis, Clarence

23.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

24.
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

25.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
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.
Keller, Helen

27.
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.

28.
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
Virgil

29.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

30.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

31.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

32.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

33.
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.

34.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

35.
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.

36.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

37.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

Akhenaton
