Best Quotes about Character
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Character is a victory, not a gift.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character matters; leadership descends from 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.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Character is victory organized.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
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
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
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.
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.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
Character development is the aim of education.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
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.
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.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
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
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
