Character

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.
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

2.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

4.
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

5.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

6.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

7.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

8.
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

9.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

10.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

11.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

12.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

13.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

14.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

15.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

16.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

17.
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.

18.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

19.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

20.
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

21.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

22.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

23.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

24.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

25.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

26.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

27.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

28.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

29.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

30.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

32.
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.

33.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

34.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

35.
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

36.
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

37.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

38.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

39.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

40.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

41.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

42.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

43.
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

44.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

45.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

46.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

47.
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

48.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

49.
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

50.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius
