Best Quotes about Character

1.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

2.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

3.
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

4.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

5.
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

6.
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

7.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

8.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

9.
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

10.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

11.
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.
Carlyle, Thomas

12.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

13.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

14.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

15.
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

16.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

20.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

21.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

22.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

23.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

24.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

25.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

26.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

27.
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

28.
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

29.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

30.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

31.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

32.
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.

33.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

34.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

35.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

36.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

37.
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

38.
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.

39.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

40.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

41.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

42.
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

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

44.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

45.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

46.
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

47.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

48.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

Collins, Marva

50.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava
