Best Quotes about Character

1.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

2.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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.

6.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

7.
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

8.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

9.
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

10.
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

11.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

12.
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

13.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

14.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

15.
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.

16.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

17.
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

18.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

19.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

20.
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

21.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

22.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

23.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

24.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

25.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

26.
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

27.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

28.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

29.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

30.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

31.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

32.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

33.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

35.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

Beecher, Henry Ward

44.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

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