Best Quotes about Character

1.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

2.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

3.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

4.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
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

6.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

7.
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

8.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

9.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

10.
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

11.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

12.
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

13.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

14.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

15.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

16.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
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

18.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

19.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

20.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

21.
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.
William Carleton

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

27.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

28.
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

29.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

30.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

31.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

32.
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

33.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

34.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

36.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

37.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

38.
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

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

42.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

43.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

44.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

45.
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

46.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

47.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

48.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

49.
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.

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