Best Quotes about Character

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

5.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

10.
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

If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

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

14.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

15.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

16.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

17.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

18.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

19.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

20.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

21.
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

22.
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

23.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

24.
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

25.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

26.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

27.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

28.
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.

29.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

30.
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.

31.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

32.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

35.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

36.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
