Famous quotes containing the word characters:

    Unresolved dissonances between the characters and dispositions of the parents continue to reverberate in the nature of the child and make up the history of its inner sufferings.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    There are as many characters in men
    As there are shapes in nature.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    No one of the characters in my novels has originated, so far as I know, in real life. If anything, the contrary was the case: persons playing a part in my life—the first twenty years of it—had about them something semi-fictitious.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)
