Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

3.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

4.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

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

7.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

8.
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.

9.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

10.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

11.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

12.
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

13.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

14.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

15.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

16.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

17.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

18.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

20.
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

21.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

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

24.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

28.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

30.
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

31.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

32.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

33.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

34.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

Buddha

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

39.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

40.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

41.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

42.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
