Best Quotes about Character

1.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

2.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

3.
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

4.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

5.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

6.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

7.
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

8.
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

9.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

10.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

14.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

15.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

16.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

17.
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.

18.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

19.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

20.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

21.
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

22.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

23.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

24.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

25.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

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.
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

29.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

30.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

31.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

32.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

34.
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

35.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

36.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

37.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

38.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

39.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

40.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

41.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

Lubbock, Sir John

48.
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

49.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

50.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William
