Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

3.
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

4.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

5.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

6.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

7.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

8.
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

9.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

10.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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.
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

13.
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.

14.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

15.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

16.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

17.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

18.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

20.
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

21.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

22.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

23.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

24.
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

25.
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.

26.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

27.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

28.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

29.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

30.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

31.
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

32.
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.

33.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

34.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

35.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

36.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

37.
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

38.
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.

39.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

40.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

41.
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

42.
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

43.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

44.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

45.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

46.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

47.
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

48.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

49.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

50.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed
