Best Quotes about Character

1.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

2.
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

3.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

4.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
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

6.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

7.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

8.
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.

9.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

10.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

11.
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

12.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

13.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

14.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

18.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

19.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

27.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

28.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

31.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

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

33.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

34.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

35.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

36.
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

37.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

38.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

39.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

40.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

41.
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

42.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

43.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

44.
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

45.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

46.
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

47.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

48.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

49.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

50.
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
