Best Quotes about Character

1.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

2.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

3.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

4.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

5.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

6.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

7.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

8.
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

9.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

10.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

11.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

12.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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.

17.
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.

18.
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

19.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

20.
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

21.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

22.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

23.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

24.
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

25.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

26.
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

27.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

28.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

29.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

30.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

31.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

32.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

33.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

34.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

35.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

36.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

37.
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.

38.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

39.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

40.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

41.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

42.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

43.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

44.
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.

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

48.
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

49.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

50.
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.
