Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

2.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

3.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

4.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

5.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

6.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

7.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

8.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

9.
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

10.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

11.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

12.
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.

13.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

14.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

15.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

16.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

17.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

18.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

19.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

20.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

21.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

22.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

23.
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.

24.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
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

26.
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

27.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

28.
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

29.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

30.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

31.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

32.
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.

33.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

34.
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

35.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

36.
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.

37.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

38.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

39.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

40.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

41.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

42.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
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

44.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

45.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

46.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
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
