Best Quotes about Character

1.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

2.
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

3.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

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.

5.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

6.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

7.
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.
James, William

8.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

9.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

10.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

11.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

12.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

13.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

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

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

16.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

17.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

18.
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

19.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

20.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

21.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

22.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

23.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

24.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

25.
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.

26.
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

27.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

28.
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

29.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

30.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

31.
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.

32.
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

33.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

34.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

35.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

36.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

37.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

38.
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.

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.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

41.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

42.
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

43.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.

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

48.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

50.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
