Best Quotes about Character

1.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

2.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

3.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

4.
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

5.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

6.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

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.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

9.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

10.
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

11.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

12.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
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.

14.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

15.
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.

16.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

17.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

18.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

19.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

20.
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

21.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

22.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

23.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

24.
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.

25.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

26.
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.

27.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

28.
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.

29.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

30.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

31.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

32.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

33.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

35.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

37.
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

38.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

39.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

40.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

41.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

42.
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.

43.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

47.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

48.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

49.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

50.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les
