Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.

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

Bible

Abbott, Lyman

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

29.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

31.

Taylor, Bayard

33.
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

34.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
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

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.
