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.
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.

2.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

3.
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

4.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

5.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

6.
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.

7.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

8.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

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

10.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

11.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

12.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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

14.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

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

16.
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

17.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

18.
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

19.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

20.
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

21.
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

22.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

23.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

24.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

25.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

26.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

27.
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

28.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

29.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

30.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

31.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

32.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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

38.
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

39.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

40.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

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

Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

43.
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.

44.
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.

Hall, Manly

46.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.

You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

48.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

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

50.
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
