Character

The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
- Angelou, Maya

Best Quotes about Character

1.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

2.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

3.
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

4.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

5.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

6.
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

7.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

8.
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

9.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

10.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

11.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

12.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

13.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

14.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

15.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

16.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

17.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
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

19.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

20.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

21.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

22.
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

23.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

24.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

25.
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

26.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

30.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

31.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

32.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

33.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

34.
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

35.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

36.
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

37.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

38.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

39.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

41.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

42.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

43.
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

44.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

45.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

46.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

48.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

49.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

50.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline
