Great Quotes on Character

You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one. -James A. Froude

A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshiping we are becoming. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Instead of saying that man is the creature of circumstance, it would be nearer the mark to say that man is the architect of circumstance. - Thomas Carlyle

Moral cowardice that keeps us from speaking our minds is as dangerous to this country as irresponsible talk. The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character. - Margaret Chase Smith

Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value. - Albert Einstein
