Best Quotes about Character

1.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

2.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

3.
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

4.
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.

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

6.
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.

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.

8.
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

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

13.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

14.
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

15.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

16.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

17.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

18.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

19.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

20.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

21.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

22.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

23.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

25.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

26.
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

27.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

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.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

30.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

32.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

33.
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

34.
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.

Thurber, James

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

40.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

41.
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.

42.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

43.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.

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
