Best Quotes about Character

1.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

2.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

3.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

4.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

5.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

6.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

7.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

8.
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

9.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

10.
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

11.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

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

14.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

15.
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

16.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

17.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

18.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

19.
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

20.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

21.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

22.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

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

24.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

25.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

26.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

27.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

28.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

29.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

30.
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

31.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

32.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

33.
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

34.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

35.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

40.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

41.
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

42.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

43.
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.

44.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

45.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

46.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

47.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

48.
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.

49.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

50.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
