Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.

Richard Greenberg

Plutarch

Lois McMaster Bujold

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

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

8.

Nathaniel Emmons

12.
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.

13.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

19.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

Akhenaton

22.
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

23.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

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

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
