Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

3.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

4.
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

5.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

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.
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

8.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

9.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

10.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

11.
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.

12.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

13.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

14.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

15.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

17.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

18.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

19.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

20.
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

21.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

22.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

23.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

24.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

25.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

26.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

27.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

28.
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

29.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

30.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

31.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

32.
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

33.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

34.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

35.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

36.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

37.
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

38.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

39.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

40.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

41.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

42.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

43.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

44.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

45.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

46.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

47.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

48.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

49.
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

50.
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
