Best Quotes about Character

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

2.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

3.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

4.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

5.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

6.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

7.
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

8.
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.

11.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

12.
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

13.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

14.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

15.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

17.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

18.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

19.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

20.
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

21.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

22.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

23.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

24.
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

25.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

27.
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.

28.
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

29.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

30.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

31.
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

32.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

33.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

35.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

36.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

37.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

38.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

Bulger, William M.

48.
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

49.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

Michener, James A.
