Best Quotes about Character
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
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.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
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;
You must look into people, as well as at them.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
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.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
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.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
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.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
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.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
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.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
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
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Character development is the aim of education.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
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.
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.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
A rich man has no need of character.
Character is our destiny.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
