Character

Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
- Abraham Lincoln

Best Quotes about Character

1.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

2.
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

3.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

5.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

6.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

7.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

8.
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

9.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

10.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

11.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

12.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

13.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

14.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

15.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

16.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

17.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

18.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

19.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

20.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

21.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

22.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

24.
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.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

25.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

26.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

27.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

28.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

29.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

30.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

31.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

32.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

33.
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

34.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

35.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

36.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

37.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

38.
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

39.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

43.
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

44.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

45.
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

46.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

48.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William
