Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
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

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

6.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

7.
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

8.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

9.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

10.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

11.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

12.
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

13.
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.

14.
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.

15.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

16.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

17.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

18.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

19.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

20.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

21.
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.

22.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

23.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

24.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

25.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

26.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

27.
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

28.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

30.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

31.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

32.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

33.
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

34.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

35.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

36.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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.

44.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

45.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

46.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

47.
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

48.
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.

49.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru
