Best Quotes about Character

1.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

2.
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

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

4.
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

5.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

Dyke, Henry Van

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

Buren, Abigail Van

14.
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

15.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

16.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

Proverb

22.
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.

23.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

24.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

26.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

27.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

28.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

30.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

31.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

32.
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.

33.
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

34.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

35.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

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

37.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

Hermann Hesse

39.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

40.
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.

41.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

42.
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

43.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

44.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

45.
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.

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.
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

48.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

49.
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

50.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible
