Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

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

4.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

5.
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.

6.
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.
Akhenaton

7.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

8.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

11.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

12.
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

13.
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.

14.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

15.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

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.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
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.

19.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

20.
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

21.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

22.
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

23.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

24.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

25.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

26.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

27.
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

28.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

29.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

30.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

31.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

32.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

33.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

34.
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

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

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

Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon
