Best Quotes about Character

1.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

2.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

3.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

4.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

5.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

6.
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

7.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

8.
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

9.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

10.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

11.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

12.
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

13.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

14.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

15.
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

16.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

17.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

18.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

19.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

21.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

22.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

23.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

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.
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

26.
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

27.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

28.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

29.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

30.
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

31.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

35.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

36.
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.

37.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

38.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

39.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

40.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

41.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

42.
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

43.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

44.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

45.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

46.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

47.
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

48.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

49.
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.

50.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
