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.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

2.
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.
William Carleton

3.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

4.
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.
James, William

5.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

6.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

7.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

8.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

9.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

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

11.
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;
Milton, John

12.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

14.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

15.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

16.
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.

17.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

19.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

20.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

21.
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

22.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

23.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

24.
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.

25.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

26.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

27.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
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.

29.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

30.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

34.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

35.
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

36.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

37.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

38.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

39.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

40.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

41.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
