Best Quotes about Character

1.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

2.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

3.
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

4.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

5.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

6.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

8.
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

9.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

10.
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

11.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

12.
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

13.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

14.
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.

15.
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

16.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

17.
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

18.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

19.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

20.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

21.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

22.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

23.
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.

24.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

25.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

29.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

30.
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.

31.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

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

33.
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.

34.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

35.
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.

36.
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

37.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

38.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.

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