Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

3.
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

4.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

5.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

6.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

7.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

8.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

9.
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.

10.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

11.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

12.
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

13.
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

14.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

15.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

16.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

17.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

19.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

20.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

21.
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

22.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

23.
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

24.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

25.
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

26.
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

27.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

28.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

29.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

30.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

31.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

32.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

33.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

34.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

35.
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

36.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

37.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

38.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
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

40.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

41.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

43.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

44.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

45.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

46.
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.

47.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

48.
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

49.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

50.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
