Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

2.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

3.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

4.
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

5.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

6.
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

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.
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

9.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

10.
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

11.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

12.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

13.
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

14.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

15.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

16.
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.

17.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

18.
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

19.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

20.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

24.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

25.
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

26.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

27.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

28.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

29.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

30.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

31.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

32.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

33.
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

34.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

35.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

36.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

37.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

38.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

39.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

40.
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

41.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

42.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

43.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

44.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

45.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

46.
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.

47.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
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

49.
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

50.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
