Best Quotes about Character
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.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Thoreau, Henry David
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
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.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
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.
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
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
A man's character is his fate.
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
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
