Best Quotes about Character

1.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

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.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

4.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

5.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

6.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

7.
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

8.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

9.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

10.
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

11.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

12.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

13.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

15.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

16.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

17.
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

18.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

19.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

20.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

21.
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

22.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

23.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

24.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

25.
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

26.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

27.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

28.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

29.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

30.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

31.
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.

32.
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

33.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

34.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

35.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

36.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

38.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

39.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

40.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

41.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

42.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

43.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

44.
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

45.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

46.
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

47.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

48.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

49.
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

50.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva
