Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

2.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

3.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

4.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

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.

6.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.

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

8.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

9.
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

10.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

12.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

13.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

14.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

15.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

16.
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.
Rohn, Jim

17.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

18.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

19.
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.
Churchill, Winston

20.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

21.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

Wooden, John

25.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

26.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

27.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

28.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

29.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

30.
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.

In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

33.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
