Best Quotes about Character

1.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

2.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

3.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

4.
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

5.
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

6.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

7.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

8.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

9.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

10.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

11.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

12.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

13.
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

14.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

15.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

17.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

18.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

19.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

20.
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

21.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

22.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

23.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

24.
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.

25.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

26.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

27.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

28.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

29.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

30.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

31.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

32.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

33.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

34.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

35.
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.

36.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

37.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

38.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

39.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

40.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

41.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

42.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

43.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

44.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

45.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

46.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

47.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
