Character

For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
- Eliot, George

Best Quotes about Character

1.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

2.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

3.
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.
James, William

4.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

5.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

6.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

7.
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.
Luther, John

8.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

9.
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.
Miller, Arthur

10.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

11.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

12.
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

13.
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.
William Carleton

14.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

15.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

16.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

17.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

20.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

21.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

22.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

23.
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;
Milton, John

24.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

25.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

26.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

27.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

28.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

30.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

31.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

33.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

34.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

35.
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

36.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

37.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

38.
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

39.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

40.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

41.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

42.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

43.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

44.
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.
Confucius

45.
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.

46.
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

47.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

48.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry
