Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

3.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

4.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

5.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

6.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

7.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

8.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

9.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

10.
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

11.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

12.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

13.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

14.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

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.
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

17.
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.
William Carleton

18.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

19.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

20.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

21.
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

22.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

23.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

24.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

25.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

26.
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.

27.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

28.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

29.
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

30.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

31.
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

32.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

33.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

34.
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

35.
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.

36.
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

37.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

38.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

39.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
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

41.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
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

43.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

44.
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

45.
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

46.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

47.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

48.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

49.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

50.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les
