Best Quotes about Character
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
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.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
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
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
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.
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.
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.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
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
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
A rich man has no need of character.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
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
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.
Character is our destiny.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
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.
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
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
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.
