Best Quotes about Character

1.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

2.
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.

3.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

4.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

12.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

13.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

14.
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

15.
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.

16.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

17.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

18.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

19.
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

20.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

21.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

22.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

23.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

24.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

25.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

26.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

27.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

29.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

30.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

31.
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

32.
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.

33.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

34.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

35.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

36.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

37.
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

38.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

39.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

43.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

44.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

45.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

46.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

47.
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

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

49.
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

50.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.
