Sports do not build character. They reveal it.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
The discipline you learn and character you build from setting and achieving a goal can be more valuable than the achievement of the goal itself.
Life experience is what defines our character, even if it means getting your heart broken or being lied to. You know, you need the downs to appreciate the ups. Going on the adventure or taking that risk is important.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Persuasion is achieved by the speaker's personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible. We believe good men more fully and more readily than others: this is true generally whatever the question is, and absolutely true where exact certainty is impossible and opinions are divided.
Character is power.
Booker T. Washington
There can be no failure to a man who has not lost his courage, his character, his self respect, or his self-confidence. He is still a King.
Orison Swett Marden
Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I am in no mood to be deceived any longer by the crafty devil and false character whose greatest pleasure is to take advantage of everyone.
A man's true character comes out when he's drunk.
People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
But the person who scored well on an SAT will not necessarily be the best doctor or the best lawyer or the best businessman. These tests do not measure character, leadership, creativity, perseverance.
William Julius Wilson
Leadership to me means duty, honor, country. It means character, and it means listening from time to time.
George W. Bush
I'm tired of defending my character. I am what I am. What you see is what you get.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.
It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character.
Google is my best friend and my worst enemy. It's fabulous for research, but then it becomes addictive. I'll have a character eating an orange, and next thing I'm Googling types of oranges, I'm visiting chat rooms about oranges, I'm learning the history of the orange.
It's always difficult to say goodbye, especially when one has spent a long time - literally years, in the case of a series - inside a character or two, suffering and celebrating with them.
When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.
We are like chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us.
When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.
Strength of character means the ability to overcome resentment against others, to hide hurt feelings, and to forgive quickly.
Lawrence G. Lovasik
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
