Best Quotes about Character

1.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

2.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

3.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

4.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

5.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

9.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

10.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

11.
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.

12.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

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

14.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

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

16.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

17.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

18.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

19.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

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

22.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

23.
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

24.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

25.
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

26.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

27.
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

28.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

30.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

31.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

32.
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

33.
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

34.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

35.
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

36.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

37.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

38.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

39.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

41.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

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

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

48.
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

49.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

50.
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
