Best Quotes about Character
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
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.
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.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
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
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.
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
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
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.
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.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
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
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
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
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
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.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
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
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
Character development is the aim of education.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
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.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
