Best Quotes about Character
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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
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.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
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.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
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.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Character development is the aim of education.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August
Character is our destiny.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward
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
