Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

4.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

6.
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

7.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

8.
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

9.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

10.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

11.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

12.
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

13.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

14.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

15.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

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

17.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

18.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

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

20.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

21.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

22.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

27.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

28.
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

29.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

30.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

31.
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

32.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

33.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

35.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

37.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

39.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

40.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

Amiel, Henri Frederic

42.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

43.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

44.
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.

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