Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

2.
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.

3.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

4.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

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

If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

8.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

9.
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

10.
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

Babson, Roger

We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

14.
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.

15.
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.

16.
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.

17.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

18.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

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

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

30.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

31.
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

32.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

33.

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

Luther, John

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