Best Quotes about Character

1.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

7.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

8.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.

Boardman, George D.

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

14.
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

15.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

16.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

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

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.

In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

24.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

27.
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.

28.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

29.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

30.
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

31.
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

Lowell, James Russell

35.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

36.
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.
