Best Quotes about Character

1.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

2.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

3.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

4.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

5.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

9.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

10.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

11.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

12.
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

13.
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

14.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

15.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

16.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

17.
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.

18.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

19.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

20.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

21.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

22.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

23.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

24.
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

25.
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

26.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

27.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

28.
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.

29.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

30.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

31.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

32.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

33.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

34.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

35.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

36.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

37.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

38.
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

39.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

40.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

41.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

43.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

44.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

45.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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

47.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

48.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

49.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

50.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace
