Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

2.
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

3.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

4.
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

5.
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.

6.
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

7.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

8.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

9.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

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

12.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

13.
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.
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.

15.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

16.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

17.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

18.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

19.
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

20.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

21.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

22.
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

23.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
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

26.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

31.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

32.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

33.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

34.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

35.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

36.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

37.
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

38.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

39.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

40.
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

41.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

42.
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.

43.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

44.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

45.
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

46.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

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

48.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

49.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

50.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
