Best Quotes about Character

1.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

2.
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

3.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

4.
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.

5.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

6.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

7.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

8.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

9.
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

10.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

11.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

12.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

13.
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.

14.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

15.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

16.
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

17.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

18.
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

19.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

20.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

21.
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

22.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

23.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

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

29.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

30.
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

31.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

32.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

35.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

36.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

37.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

38.
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

39.
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

40.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

41.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

42.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

43.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

44.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

45.
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

46.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

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

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.

49.
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.

50.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
