Favorite Someones Character Quotes

1. "It seems everyone wants to know if I have an eating disorder, and playing an anorexic character on 'Make it or Break It' probably didn't help much. To set the record straight, I certainly do not have an eating disorder. I think as anyone can gather, I love food, and it is not just a front to cover up the fact that I don't eat any."
Author: Alice Greczyn
2. "Knowing I can design, develop and describe any situation, character or emotion the way I want to, when I want to makes me feel alive."
Author: Amaya Ellman
3. "Of course one's sense of identification with the nation is inflected by all kinds of particulars, including one's class, race, gender, and sexual identification. … But [regarding] national character …, aside from references to a national aesthetic — literary, musical, and choreographic, there are two poles I reference: minimalist and maximalist. I love them both — the cryptic poems of Emily Dickinson folded up in tiny packets and hidden away in a box, the sparse, understated choreographies of Merce; but also the "trashy, profane and obscene" poems of Whitman and Ginsberg, [and] Martha Graham's expressionism. I am, myself, a minimalist. But I love distortion guitar and the wild exhibitionism of so many American artists. Also, these divisions are false. Emily Dickinson, in fact, can be as trashy and obscene as the best of them! Anyway, Dickinson and Whitman are at the heart of this narrative. They are the Dancing Queen and the Guitar Hero."
Author: Barbara Browning
4. "There is no index of character as sure as the voice."
Author: Benjamin Disraeli
5. "He had been educated in no habits of application and concentration. The system which had addressed him in exactly the same manner as it had addressed hundreds of other boys, all varying in character and capacity, had enabled him to dash through his tasks, always with fair credit and often with distinction, but in a fitful, dazzling way that had confirmed his reliance on those very qualities in himself which it had been most desirable to direct and train. They were good qualities, without which no high place can be meritoriously won, but like fire and water, though excellent servants, they were very bad masters. If they had been under Richard's direction, they would have been his friends; but Richard being under their direction, they became his enemies."
Author: Charles Dickens
6. "The actors I admire are character actors."
Author: Chaske Spencer
7. "I think the genre of comics sometimes overtakes the medium, and people assume that they are kind of frivolous. If you have a good, strong story teller, they can be as affecting as any character in literature. Period."
Author: Chip Kidd
8. "I'm not the expert on the great gameplay. I come in for the character design, monsters, atmosphere. I'm not the technician."
Author: Clive Barker
9. "I'd love to pop back into 'Being Human' as Adam. I love the character so much. I've never really played a character like that. I'm always playing the geek, so to play a kid who is very energetic when he wants to be, and who is always trying to get the girls, was really cool."
Author: Craig Roberts
10. "I fit into the quirky, character class type of actor."
Author: Debra Wilson
11. "I'd love to play a gangster but I think people might say I looked a bit too young and cheeky to play a character who'd just blown someones head off!"

Author: E. Stanley Jones
13. "I also happened to identify with Julien Sorel. Sorel's basic character flaws had all cemented by the age of fifteen, a fact which further elicited my sympathy. To have all the building blocks of your life in place by that age was, by any standard, a tragedy."
Author: Haruki Murakami
14. "You learn to rely on a few basic movements and use your voice to the greatest extent possible to convey your emotions. So there was a technical challenge there and a responsibility to create a character from behind the mask."
Author: Helena Bonham Carter
15. "Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart."
Author: Henry Clay
16. "[H]is first purpose was to explain himself, and before they reached Mr. Allen's grounds he had done it so well that Catherine did not think it could ever be repeated too often. She was assured of his affection; and that heart in return was solicited, which, perhaps, they pretty equally knew was already entirely his own; for, though Henry was now sincerely attached to her, though he felt and delighted in all the excellencies of her character and truly loved her society, I must confess that his affection originated in nothing better than gratitude, or, in other words, that a persuasion of her partiality for him had been the only cause of giving her a serious thought. It is a new circumstance in romance, I acknowledge, and dreadfully derogatory of an heroine's dignity; but if it be as new in common life, the credit of a wild imagination will at least be all my own."
Author: Jane Austen
17. "Actors usually respond to minor aspects of their own character or things that even feel disparate from themselves."
Author: Jeff Perry
18. "Because power corrupts, society's demands for moral authority and character increase as the importance of the position increases."
Author: John Adams
19. "The superior man acquaints himself with many sayings of antiquity and many deeds of the past, in order to strengthen his character thereby."
Author: John Milton

Author: Kay Granger
21. "A bad composition carries its own punishment—contempt and ridicule; a good one excites envy and entails upon its author a thousand mortifications; he finds himself assailed by partial and ill-humored criticism; one man finds fault with the plan, another with the style, a third with the precept which strives to inculcate; and they who cannot succeed in finding fault with the book, employ themselves in stigmatizing its author: they maliciously rake out from obscurity every little circumstance which may throw ridicule upon his private character or conduct and aim at wounding the man since they cannot hurt the writer."
Author: Matthew Gregory Lewis
22. "Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel."
Author: Napoleon Hill
23. "Long engagements give people the opportunity of finding out each other's character before marriage, which is never advisable."
Author: Oscar Wilde
24. "Tocqueville saw that the life of constant action and decision which was entailed by the democratic and businesslike character of American life put a premium upon rough and ready habits of mind, quick decision, and the prompt seizure of opportunities - and that all this activity was not propitious for deliberation, elaboration, or precision in thought."
Author: Richard Hofstadter
25. "But the character of the music emphasized the tale as allegory--humorous, poignant, humane allegory--disclosing the metamorphosis of life itself, in which man moves from confident inexperience through the bitterness of experience, toward the rueful wisdom of self-knowledge."
Author: Robertson Davies
26. "When in doubt, give a character big, blown-up eyes and puffy lips."
Author: Stephan Pastis

Author: Steven Hatfill
28. "Creating a character and living truthfully through her is a whole different ball game. It's all part of the same person but it's a much newer medium for me."
Author: Taylor Dane
29. "In fact, were it given to our human eye to see into the consciences of others, we would judge a man much more surely from what he dreams than from what he thinks. There is will in the thought, there is none in the dream. Even in the gigantic and the ideal, the dream, which is completely spontaneous, takes and keeps the form of our mind. Nothing springs more directly and more sincerely from our innermost souls than our unreflected and indefinite aspirations, much more than in ideas, which are structured, studied, and compared, can we find the true character of each man. Our chimeras are most like us. Each of us dreams the unknown and the impossible according to his own nature."
Author: Victor Hugo
30. "Success is the only motivational factor that a boy with character needs."
Author: Woody Hayes
