Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

3.
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.

4.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

5.
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

6.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

8.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

9.
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

10.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

11.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

12.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

13.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

14.
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.

15.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

16.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

17.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

18.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

22.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

24.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

25.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

26.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

27.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

28.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

33.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

34.
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

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

In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

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

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

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

45.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

46.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

47.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
