Best Quotes about Character
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
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.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is our destiny.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
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.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
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.

We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
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.
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.
A rich man has no need of character.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
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.
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.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van
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.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
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.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
A man's character is his fate.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
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.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
