Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

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

3.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

4.
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

5.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

6.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

7.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

9.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

10.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

11.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

12.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
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

14.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

15.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

16.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

17.
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

18.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

19.
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

20.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

21.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

22.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

23.
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

24.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

25.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

26.
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.

27.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
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.

31.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

32.
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

33.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

34.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

35.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

36.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

37.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

38.
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

39.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

40.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

41.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

42.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

43.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

44.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

45.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

46.
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

47.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

48.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

49.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

50.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
