Best Quotes about Character

1.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

Abraham Lincoln

3.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

4.
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

5.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character

Thomas, John M.

11.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

12.
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

13.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

King Jr. Martin Luther

17.
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

18.
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.

19.
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

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

28.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

30.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

31.
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

32.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

Richard Greenberg

38.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

39.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

43.

William Carleton

49.
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.

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