Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

2.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

3.
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

4.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

5.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

6.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

7.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

8.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

9.
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

10.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

11.
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

12.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

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

14.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

15.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

16.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

17.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

18.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

19.
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.

20.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

21.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

22.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

23.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

24.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

25.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

26.
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

27.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

28.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

30.
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

31.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

33.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

34.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

35.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.

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

38.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

39.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

40.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

41.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

42.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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