Best Quotes about Character
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
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.
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.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
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.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
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 a man is known from his conversations.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
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.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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 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.
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

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
