Best Quotes about Character
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.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
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.
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.
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.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character development is the aim of education.
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
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
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.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
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.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
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.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
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.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Character is a victory, not a gift.
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
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
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
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
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
A man's character is his fate.
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.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

King Jr. Martin Luther

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