Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
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

3.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

4.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

5.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

6.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

7.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

8.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

9.
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

10.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

11.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

12.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

14.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

15.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

16.
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

17.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

18.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

19.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

20.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

24.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

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

26.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

27.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

28.
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

29.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

30.
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

31.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

32.
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

33.
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.

34.
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

35.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

36.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

37.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

38.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

39.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

40.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

41.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

42.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

43.
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

44.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

45.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

46.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

47.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

48.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

49.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

50.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.
