Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

Character is a victory, not a gift.

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

10.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

11.
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

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

14.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

15.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

16.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

17.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.

Akhenaton

22.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

23.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

24.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

26.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

27.
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.

28.
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
