Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

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

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

13.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.

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.

19.
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.

Lebowitz, Fran

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

22.
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

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

King Jr. Martin Luther

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

27.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

28.
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

Thomas, Isiah

41.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

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

Confucius

48.
