Best Quotes about Character

1.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

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.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

4.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

5.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

6.
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

7.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
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

9.
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.

10.
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

11.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

12.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

13.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

14.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

15.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

16.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

17.
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.

18.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

19.
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.

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
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

23.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

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

25.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

26.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

27.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

28.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

29.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

30.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

31.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

32.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

33.
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

34.
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

35.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

36.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

37.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

38.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

39.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

40.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

41.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

42.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

43.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

44.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

48.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

49.
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

50.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin
