Best Quotes about Character

Babson, Roger

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

6.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

7.
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

8.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

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

13.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

14.
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

15.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

16.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

17.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

18.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

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

23.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

24.
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

25.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
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

27.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

Maritain, Jacques

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

31.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

32.
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

33.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
