Best Quotes about Character

1.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

2.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

3.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

4.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

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

6.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

7.
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.

8.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

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

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

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.
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

14.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

15.
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.

16.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

17.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

18.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

19.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

20.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

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

22.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

23.
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

24.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

25.
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

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

27.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

28.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

29.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

30.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

31.
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

32.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

33.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

34.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

35.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

36.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

37.
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

38.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

39.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

Merikare

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

Character is a victory, not a gift.

47.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

48.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

49.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

50.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger
