Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
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

3.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

4.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

5.
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

6.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

7.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

8.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

9.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

10.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

11.
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.

12.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

13.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

14.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

15.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

16.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

17.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

18.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

20.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

21.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

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

26.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

27.
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

28.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

29.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

30.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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.

34.
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

35.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

36.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

40.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

41.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

42.
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

43.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

44.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

45.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

46.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

47.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

48.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

49.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

50.
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.
