Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

2.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

6.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

9.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

10.
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.

11.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

12.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

13.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

14.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

15.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

17.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

18.
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

19.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

20.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

21.
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

22.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

23.
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

24.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

25.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

26.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

27.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

28.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

29.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

30.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

31.
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.
Carlyle, Thomas

32.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

33.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

34.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.

Maurois, Andre

Chambers, Oswald
