Character

Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
- Thoreau, Henry David

Best Quotes about Character

1.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

2.
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.
Trotsky, Leon

3.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

4.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

5.
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.

6.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

7.
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.
Miller, Arthur

8.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

9.
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.

10.
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

11.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

12.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

13.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

14.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

15.
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.

16.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

17.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

18.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

20.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

21.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

22.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

23.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

24.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

25.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

26.
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

27.
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.

28.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

29.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

30.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

31.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

32.
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.

33.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

34.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

35.
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.
George Santayana

36.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

37.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

38.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

39.
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

40.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

41.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

42.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

43.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

44.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

45.
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.
Akhenaton

46.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

47.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

48.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

49.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
