Best Quotes about Character

1.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

2.
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

3.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

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

6.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

7.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

8.
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

9.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

10.
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.

11.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

12.
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.

13.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

14.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

15.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

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

18.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

19.
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

20.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

21.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

22.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

23.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

24.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

25.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
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

31.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

32.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

33.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

34.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

35.
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.

36.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

37.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

38.
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

39.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

40.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

41.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

45.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

46.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

48.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

49.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

50.
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.
