Character

A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

3.
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.
Lebowitz, Fran

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

5.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

6.
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

7.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

9.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

10.
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.
Wooden, John

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

How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

13.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

14.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

15.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

16.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

17.
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

18.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

19.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

20.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

21.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

22.
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.

23.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

24.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

25.
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

26.
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.
Luther, John

27.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

28.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

29.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

30.
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

31.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

32.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

35.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

36.
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.

37.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

38.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.

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.

Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

45.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

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

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

People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.

Aristotle
