Best Quotes about Character

1.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

2.
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

3.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

4.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

5.
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

6.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

7.
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.

8.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

9.
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

10.
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

11.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

12.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

13.
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

14.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

15.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

16.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

17.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

18.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

19.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

20.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

21.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

22.
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.

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

26.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

27.
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

28.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

29.
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

30.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

31.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

32.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

33.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

34.
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

35.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

36.
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.

37.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

38.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

39.
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

40.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

41.
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.

42.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

43.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

44.
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

45.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

46.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

47.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

48.
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

49.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

50.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
