Best Quotes about Character

1.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

2.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

3.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

4.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

5.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

6.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

7.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

8.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

13.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

14.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

15.
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

16.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

17.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

18.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

19.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

20.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

21.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

22.
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

23.
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

24.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

25.
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

26.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

27.
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.

28.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

29.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

30.
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

31.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

32.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

34.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

35.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

36.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

37.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

38.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

39.
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

40.
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
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

41.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

42.
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

43.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

47.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

48.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

49.
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

50.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse
