Best Quotes about Character

1.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

2.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

3.
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

4.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

5.
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.

6.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.

One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

9.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

14.
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

15.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

16.
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

17.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

18.
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.

19.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

20.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

21.
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

22.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

23.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

24.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

25.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

26.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

27.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

28.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

29.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

30.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

31.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

32.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

34.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

35.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

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.
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

38.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

39.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

40.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

41.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

42.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

43.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

44.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

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.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

47.
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.
Rohn, Jim

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

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

One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
