Best Quotes about Character

1.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

2.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

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

4.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

5.
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

6.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

7.
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

8.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

9.
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

10.
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

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.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

13.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

14.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

15.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

16.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

17.
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.

18.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

19.
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

20.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

21.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

22.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

23.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

24.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

25.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

26.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

28.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

29.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

30.
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

31.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

32.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

33.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

35.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

36.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

Plutarch

41.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

42.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

43.
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

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

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

49.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
