Best Quotes about Character
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
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
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

The character of a man is known from his conversations.
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.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
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
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
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.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
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.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
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.
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.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
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
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
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
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
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.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
