Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

2.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

3.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

6.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham

7.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

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

15.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

16.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

17.
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

18.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

19.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

20.
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

21.
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.
Cicero

22.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

24.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

Arran, Earl of

27.
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.
Francis, Clarence

28.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

29.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

30.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

31.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

32.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

33.
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

34.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

Chesterfield, Lord
