Best Quotes about Character

1.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

2.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

3.
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

4.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

5.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

6.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

7.
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

8.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

9.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

10.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

11.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

12.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

13.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

14.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

15.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

16.
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.

17.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

18.
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

19.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

20.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

21.
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.

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

27.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

28.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

29.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

30.
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

31.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

32.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

36.
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

37.
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.

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

40.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

41.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

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.
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.

48.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

49.
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

50.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
