Best Quotes about Character

1.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

2.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

Carlyle, Thomas

13.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

14.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

15.
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

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

26.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

27.
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

28.
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

29.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

30.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

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

Petrarch, Francesco

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

39.
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.

40.
