Best Quotes about Character

1.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

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

3.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

4.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

5.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

6.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

7.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

11.
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.

12.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

13.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

14.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

15.
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.

16.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

17.
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

18.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

19.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

20.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

21.
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

22.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

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

24.
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.

25.
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.

26.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

27.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

28.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

29.
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

30.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

31.
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.

32.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

33.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

34.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

35.

Abraham Lincoln

36.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

40.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

41.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

42.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble

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

If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

49.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

50.
