Character

Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
- Carlyle, Thomas

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

3.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

4.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

5.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

6.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

11.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

15.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

16.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

17.
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

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

19.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

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.
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

22.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

23.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

24.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

25.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

26.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

27.
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.

28.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
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

30.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

31.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

32.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

33.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

34.
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.

35.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

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

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

47.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

48.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

49.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.

Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
