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.
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

2.
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

3.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

4.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

5.
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.

6.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

8.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

9.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

10.
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

11.
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.
Richard Greenberg

12.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

13.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

14.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

15.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

16.
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

17.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

18.
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

19.
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.

20.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

21.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

22.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

23.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

24.
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

25.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

26.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

27.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

28.
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

29.
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

30.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

31.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

32.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

33.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

34.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

35.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

36.
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
