Character

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.
- Cicero

Best Quotes about Character

1.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

3.
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

4.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

5.
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

6.
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.

7.
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

8.
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.

9.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

10.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

11.
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

12.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

13.
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.

14.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

15.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

16.
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.

17.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

18.
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

19.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

20.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

21.
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.

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
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

26.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

27.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

28.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

32.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

33.
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

34.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

35.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

36.
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

37.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

38.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

39.
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

40.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

41.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

42.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

44.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

45.
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

46.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
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

48.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

49.
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

50.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander
