Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

3.
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

4.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

5.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

6.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

7.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

8.
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

9.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

10.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

11.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

12.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

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

14.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

15.
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

16.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

17.
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

18.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

19.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

20.
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

21.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

22.
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.

23.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

24.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

25.
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

26.
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.

27.
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

28.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

29.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

30.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

31.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

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

33.
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

34.
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.

35.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

36.
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

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

38.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

39.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

40.
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

41.
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

42.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

43.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

44.
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

45.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

46.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
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
