Best Quotes about Character

1.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

2.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

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.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

5.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

6.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

7.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

8.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

9.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

11.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

12.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

13.
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

14.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

15.
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.

16.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

17.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

22.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

23.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

24.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

25.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

27.
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

28.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

29.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

30.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

31.

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

36.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

37.
