Best Quotes about Character

1.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

2.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

3.
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

4.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

5.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

6.
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

7.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

8.
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.

9.
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

10.
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.

11.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

12.
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

13.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

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

15.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

16.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

19.
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.

20.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

21.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

22.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

23.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

24.
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

25.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

26.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

27.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

28.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

29.
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.

30.
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

31.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

32.
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

33.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

34.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

35.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

36.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

37.
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

38.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

39.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

40.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

41.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

42.
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

43.
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

44.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

45.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

46.
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

47.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

48.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

49.
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

50.
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
