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.

2.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

6.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

7.
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

8.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

9.
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.

10.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

11.
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

12.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

14.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

15.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

16.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

17.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

19.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

20.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

21.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

22.
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

23.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

24.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

26.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

27.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

28.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

29.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

30.
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

31.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

32.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

33.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

34.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

35.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

36.
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

37.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

38.
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

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

42.
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

43.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

44.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

45.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

46.
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

47.
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

48.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

49.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

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