Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

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.

4.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

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

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

7.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

8.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

9.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

11.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

12.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

13.
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

14.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

15.
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

16.
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

17.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

18.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

Heraclitus

20.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

21.
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.

22.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

23.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

24.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

25.
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.

26.
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

27.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

29.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

30.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

31.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

32.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

33.
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.

34.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

35.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

36.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

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

Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

40.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

Trotsky, Leon

50.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb
