Best Quotes about Character
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.

If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
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.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

Lavater, Johann Kaspar
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
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
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.

Wilson, Woodrow T.
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
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
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
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
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
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
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.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
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
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
