Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.
Akhenaton

2.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham

3.
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.
Maurois, Andre

4.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

5.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

6.
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

7.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

8.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

9.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

11.
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.

12.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

13.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

14.
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

15.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

16.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

17.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

18.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

19.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

20.
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

21.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

22.
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.

23.
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.

24.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

25.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

26.
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

27.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

28.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

29.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

30.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

31.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

32.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

33.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

34.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

35.
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

36.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

37.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

39.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

40.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

41.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

42.
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

43.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

44.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

45.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

46.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

47.
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.
Lebowitz, Fran

48.
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

49.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
