Best Quotes about Character

1.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

2.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

3.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

4.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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.

12.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

13.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

14.
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.

15.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

16.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

17.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

18.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

19.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

20.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

21.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

22.
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

23.
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.

24.
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

25.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

26.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

27.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

28.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

29.
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.

30.
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

31.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

32.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

33.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

34.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

35.
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

36.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

38.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

40.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

41.
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

42.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

44.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

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

Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

47.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

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