Best Quotes about Character

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

Hume, David

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

14.

Thurber, James

15.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

16.
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

17.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

Michener, James A.

19.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

20.

William Carleton

21.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

22.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

28.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

30.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

32.
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.

Wilson, Woodrow T.

Confucius

38.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
