Best Quotes about Character

1.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

2.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

3.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

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

6.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

7.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

9.
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.

10.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

11.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

12.
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

13.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

14.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

15.
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

16.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

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

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 higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

20.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

21.
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.

22.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

24.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

25.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

26.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

27.
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

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

29.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

30.
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.

31.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

32.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

33.
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

34.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

35.
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.

36.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

37.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

38.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

39.
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

40.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

41.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

42.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

43.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

48.
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.

49.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

50.
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.
