Best Quotes about Character

1.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

2.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

3.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

8.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

9.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

10.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

11.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

12.
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

13.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

14.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

15.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

16.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

17.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

18.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

20.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

21.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

22.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

23.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

24.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

25.
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

26.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

27.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

28.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

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

31.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

32.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

38.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
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.

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

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.

43.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

44.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

45.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle
