Best Quotes about Character
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
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.

Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
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
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
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
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
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.
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

Lowell, James Russell
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
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?
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
