Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
- Gaulle, Charles De

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

2.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

3.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

4.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

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

6.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

7.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

9.
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

10.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

11.
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

12.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

13.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

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.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

19.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

20.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

21.
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.
Carlyle, Thomas

22.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
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

24.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

25.
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.

26.
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

27.
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

28.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

29.
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.

30.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

31.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

32.
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

33.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

34.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

35.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

Drummond, Henry

42.
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.

43.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

44.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

45.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

46.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

47.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

48.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

49.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

50.
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
