Best Quotes about Character
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
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 is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
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.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
Character is a victory, not a gift.
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.
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
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.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
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.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
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.
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.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
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.
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.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
Character development is the aim of education.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
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?
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.
