Character

Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
- Lowell, James Russell

Best Quotes about Character

1.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

2.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

3.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
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

5.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

6.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

7.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

8.
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

9.
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

10.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

11.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

12.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

13.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

14.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

15.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

16.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

17.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

19.
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

20.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

21.
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.

22.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

23.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

24.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

25.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

26.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

27.
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

28.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

29.
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

30.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

31.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

32.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

33.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

34.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

35.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

36.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

37.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

38.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

40.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

41.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

42.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

43.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

44.
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

45.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

46.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

47.
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

48.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

49.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

50.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
