Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

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

7.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

Greeley, Horace

Luther, John

14.
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.
William Carleton

15.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

16.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.

Robbins, Anthony

Abbott, Lyman

23.
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

24.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

25.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

26.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

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.
Maurois, Andre

You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

32.

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

34.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

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.
