Best Quotes about Character
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
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

Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Aquinas, St. Thomas
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
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.

Peter The Great
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
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.
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.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
