Best Quotes about Character
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
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
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Character is our destiny.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
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

Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
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
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
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
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
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
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.
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.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Integrity has no need of rules.
Character is a victory, not a gift.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
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.
