Character

Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
- Gaulle, Charles De

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

3.

Gill, Vince

4.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

Wooden, John

While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

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

11.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

13.

Linall Jr. A. L.

15.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

16.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

17.
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.

18.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

Keller, Helen

20.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

21.
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

22.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

23.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

24.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

25.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

26.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

27.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

28.
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

29.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

32.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

37.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.

Thomas, Isiah

44.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

45.
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

46.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

47.
