Best Quotes about Character

1.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

2.
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.

3.
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

4.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

5.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

6.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

7.
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

8.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

9.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

11.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

12.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

13.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

14.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

15.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

16.
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

17.
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

18.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

19.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

20.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

21.
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

22.
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

23.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

24.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

25.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

26.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

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.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

29.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

30.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

31.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

32.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

33.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

34.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

35.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

36.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

37.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

38.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

39.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

40.
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.

41.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

42.
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

43.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

44.
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

45.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

46.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

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

50.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
