Best Quotes about Character

1.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

2.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

3.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

4.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

6.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

7.
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.
Churchill, Winston

8.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

9.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

10.
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

Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

16.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

17.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

18.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

19.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

20.
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

21.
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.

22.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

23.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

24.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham

25.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

27.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

28.
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

33.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil
