Best Quotes about Character
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.

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
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
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.

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
