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.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
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.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Integrity has no need of rules.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
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.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
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.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
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.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
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
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
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.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
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.
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
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.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
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.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
