Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

5.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

6.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

7.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

8.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

9.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

10.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

11.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

12.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

16.
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.

17.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

18.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

20.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

21.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

22.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

23.
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.

24.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

25.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

26.
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

27.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

28.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

29.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

30.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

31.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

32.
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

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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.

36.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

37.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

38.
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

39.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

40.
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

41.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

47.
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

48.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

49.
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

50.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.
