Best Quotes about Character

1.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

2.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
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

4.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

5.
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

6.
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.

7.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

8.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

9.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

10.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

11.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

12.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

13.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

14.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

18.
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.

19.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

20.
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

21.
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.

22.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

23.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

29.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

30.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

32.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

33.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

34.
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

35.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

36.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

37.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

38.
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

39.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

40.
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.

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

42.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

43.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

44.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

47.
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

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

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

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