Best Quotes about Character

1.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

2.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

3.
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

4.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

5.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

6.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

7.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

8.
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

9.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

10.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

11.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

15.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

16.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

17.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

18.
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.

19.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

21.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

22.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

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

28.
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.
Cicero, Marcus T.

29.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

30.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

31.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

32.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

33.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

34.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

35.
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

36.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

37.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

38.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

39.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

40.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

41.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

42.
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

43.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

44.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

45.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

46.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

47.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

48.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

49.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

50.
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
