Best Quotes about Character
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

Marden, Orison Swett
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!.

Richter, Jean Paul
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
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
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.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
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.
