Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

2.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

3.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

4.
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.

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

6.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

7.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

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

9.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

10.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

11.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

12.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

13.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

14.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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

17.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

18.
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

19.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

20.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

21.
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

22.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
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.

24.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

25.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

27.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

28.
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

29.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

30.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

34.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

35.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

36.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

37.
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

38.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

39.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

40.
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

41.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

42.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

43.
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.

44.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

45.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

46.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

47.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert
