Best Quotes about Character

1.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

2.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

3.
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

4.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

5.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

6.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

7.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

8.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

9.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

10.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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

13.
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

14.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

15.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

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.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

18.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

24.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

25.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

26.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

27.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

31.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

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

33.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

35.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

36.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

37.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

38.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

40.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

44.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

45.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

46.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

47.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

48.
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.

49.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

50.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas
