Character

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.

Best Quotes about Character

1.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

2.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

3.
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
Virgil

4.
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.

5.
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

6.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
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

8.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

9.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

10.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

11.
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.

12.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

13.
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

14.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

15.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

16.
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

17.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

18.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

19.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

20.
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

21.
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.

22.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

23.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

24.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

25.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

26.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

27.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

28.
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

29.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

30.
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.

31.
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

32.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

33.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

34.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

35.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

38.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

39.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

40.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

41.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

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

43.
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

44.
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

Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed
