Character

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.
- Churchill, Winston

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

2.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

3.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

4.
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

5.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

6.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

7.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

8.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

9.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

10.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

11.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

12.
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

13.
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

14.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

15.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

16.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

17.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

18.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

19.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

20.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

21.
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.

22.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

23.
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

24.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

25.
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

26.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

27.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

28.
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

29.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

30.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

31.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

32.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
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

34.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

35.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

36.
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

37.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

38.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

39.
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.

40.
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

41.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

42.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

43.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

44.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

45.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

46.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

47.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

48.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

49.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
