Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

3.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

4.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

5.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

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

8.
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.

9.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

10.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

11.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

12.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
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

14.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

15.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

16.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

17.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

18.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

19.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

20.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

21.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

22.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

23.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

24.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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.
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

31.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

32.
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.

33.
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.

34.
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

35.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

36.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

38.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

39.
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

40.
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

41.
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

42.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

43.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

44.
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

45.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

46.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

47.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

48.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

49.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

50.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
