Best Quotes about Character

1.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

2.
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.

3.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

8.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

9.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

10.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

11.
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

12.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

13.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

14.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

15.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

16.
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

17.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

18.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

19.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

20.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
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

24.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

25.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

26.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

27.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

28.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

30.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

31.
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

32.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

33.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

34.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

35.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

36.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

37.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

38.
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

39.
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

40.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

41.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

42.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

43.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

44.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

45.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

46.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

47.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

48.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

49.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

50.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb
