Best Quotes about Character

1.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

2.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

3.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

4.
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

5.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

7.
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

8.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

9.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

10.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

11.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

12.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

13.
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

14.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

15.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

16.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

17.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

18.
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

19.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

20.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

21.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

22.
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

23.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

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

25.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
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

27.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

28.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

29.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

30.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

32.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

33.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

35.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

36.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Proverb, African

44.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

45.
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

46.
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
