Best Quotes about Character
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
Character is a victory, not a gift.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
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
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
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.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
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
Character development is the aim of education.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
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
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.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
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.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
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.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
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.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Integrity has no need of rules.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
