Best Quotes about Character
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.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
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
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
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
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van
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
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
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
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character is a victory, not a gift.
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.
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
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
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.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
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.
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.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
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
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.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
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.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
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.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
Character is our destiny.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.
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.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
