Best Quotes about Character

All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

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.

3.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

4.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

5.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

6.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

7.
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.
Carlyle, Thomas

8.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

9.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

11.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

15.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

16.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

17.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

18.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

19.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

20.
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.

21.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

22.
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

23.
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

24.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

25.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

26.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

27.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

28.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

29.
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.

30.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

31.
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

32.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

33.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

34.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

35.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

36.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

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

38.
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
