Best Quotes about Character

1.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

2.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

3.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

4.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

5.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

6.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

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

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

Keller, Helen

10.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

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.
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

A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

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

Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

18.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

19.
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

20.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

21.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

22.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

23.
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

24.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

28.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

29.
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.
Confucius

30.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

31.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

32.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

33.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

34.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

35.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

36.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

37.
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

38.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

48.
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

49.
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

Karr, Alphonse
