Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

3.
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

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

5.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

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

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

Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

9.
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

10.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

12.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

13.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

14.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

15.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

16.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

17.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

18.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

19.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

Plautus, Titus Maccius

24.
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.

25.
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

26.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

27.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

28.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

29.
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

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

32.
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

33.
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.

34.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

35.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

Howell, Harry

38.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

39.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

40.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva
