Best Quotes about Character

1.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

2.
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

3.
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.

4.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

5.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

6.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

7.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thoreau, Henry David

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

13.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

Thoreau, Henry David

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

19.
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

20.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

Robbins, Anthony

24.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]

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

27.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

28.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

29.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

30.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

31.
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

32.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

33.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

34.
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

35.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

36.
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

37.

45.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

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.

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

48.
