Best Quotes about Character

1.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

King Jr. Martin Luther

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

6.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

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.

14.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

15.
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.

16.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

17.

Luther, John

22.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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.

33.
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

Eliot, George

38.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

39.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

40.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

43.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.

Buren, Abigail Van

Babson, Roger

46.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
