- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

William Carleton

9.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

18.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

19.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

20.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

21.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

22.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

23.
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
Virgil

24.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

25.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

26.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

Richards, Mary Caroline

28.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

29.
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
Akhenaton

You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

Bounds, E. M.

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

38.
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

39.
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.

Wooden, John

41.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
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!.
James, William

43.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

45.
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

46.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

47.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

48.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

49.

Drummond, Henry

50.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver
