Best Quotes about Character
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.
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.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your 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.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
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
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
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.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
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
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
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
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.
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
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
Character development is the aim of education.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
