Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

3.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

4.
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

5.
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

6.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

7.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

8.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

10.
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

11.
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

12.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

13.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

14.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

15.
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

16.
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

17.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

18.
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

19.
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

20.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

21.
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

22.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

24.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

25.
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.

26.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

27.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

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.
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

30.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

31.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

32.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

33.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

34.
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

35.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

36.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

37.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

38.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

39.
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

40.
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

41.
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

42.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

43.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

44.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

49.
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

50.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim
