Best Quotes about Character
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
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
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.
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
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
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.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
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?
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
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 is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
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.
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
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
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
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
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
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 matters; leadership descends from character.
A man's character is his fate.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
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.
