Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
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

3.
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.

4.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

5.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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

9.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

10.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

11.
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

12.
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

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

14.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

15.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

16.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

17.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

18.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

19.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

20.
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

21.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

22.
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

23.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

24.
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

25.
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

26.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

27.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

28.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

29.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

30.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

31.
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.

32.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

33.
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

34.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

35.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

36.
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

37.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

38.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

39.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

40.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

41.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

42.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

43.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

44.
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.

45.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

46.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

47.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

48.
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.

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