Best Quotes about Character

1.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

2.
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

3.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

4.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

5.
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.

6.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

7.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

8.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

9.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

10.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

11.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

12.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

13.
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

14.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

15.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

16.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

17.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

18.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

19.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

20.
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

21.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

22.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

23.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

24.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

25.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

26.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

27.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

28.
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

29.
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

30.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

31.
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

32.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

33.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

34.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

35.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

36.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

37.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

38.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

39.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

43.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

44.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.

Cicero

49.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

50.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen
