Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

3.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

4.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

5.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

6.
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

7.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

8.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

9.
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

10.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

11.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

12.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

13.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

14.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

15.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

16.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

17.
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

18.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

19.
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

20.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

21.
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

22.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

23.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

24.
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.

25.
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

26.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

27.
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.

28.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

29.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

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

31.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

32.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

33.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

34.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

35.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

36.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.

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.

Abraham Lincoln

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