Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

4.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

5.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

6.
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

7.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

8.
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.
Francis, Clarence

9.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

10.
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.

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

12.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
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.

14.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

15.
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

16.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

17.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

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

Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

21.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

22.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

23.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

24.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

25.
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

26.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

27.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

28.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

29.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

30.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

31.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

32.
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

33.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

34.
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

35.
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

36.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

37.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
