Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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.

6.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

7.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

8.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

9.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

10.
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

11.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

12.
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

13.
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.

14.
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.

15.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

16.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

17.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
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.
Smith, Roy L.

19.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

20.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

21.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

25.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

26.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

28.
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

29.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

30.
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

31.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

38.
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

39.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
