Best Quotes about Character
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
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.

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 have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
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.
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.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
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
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.

The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
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 what you know you are, not what others think you have.
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
