Best Quotes about Character
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
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
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?
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
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
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;
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
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.
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
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
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.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
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.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
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.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
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.
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

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