Best Quotes about Character
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
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
Character is simply habit long continued.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
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
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

Marden, Orison Swett
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.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
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
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.
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.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

Haliburton, Thomas C.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
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.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.

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