Best Quotes about Character
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
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.
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.
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
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.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
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
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.
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.

Linall Jr. A. L.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
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.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Character is victory organized.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
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
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
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.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
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.
A man's character is his fate.
