Best Quotes about Character

1.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

2.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

3.
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.

4.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

5.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

6.
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.

7.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

8.
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

9.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

10.
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

11.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

12.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

13.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

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.
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

16.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

18.
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

19.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

20.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

21.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

22.
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

23.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

24.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

25.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

26.
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

27.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

28.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

29.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

30.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

31.
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

32.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

33.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

34.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

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

36.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

37.
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.

38.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

39.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

40.
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

41.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

42.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

43.
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.

44.
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.

45.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

46.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

47.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

48.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

49.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

50.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
