Best Quotes about Character

1.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

2.
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

3.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

4.
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

5.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

6.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

7.
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.

8.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

9.
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

10.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

11.
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

12.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

13.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

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

16.
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

17.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

18.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

19.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

20.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

21.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

22.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

23.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

24.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

25.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

26.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

27.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

31.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

32.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

33.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

34.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

35.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

36.
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

37.
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

38.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

39.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

40.
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

41.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

42.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

43.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

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

Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

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

If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.

Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

George Santayana
