Best Quotes about Character

1.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

2.
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

3.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

4.
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

5.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

6.
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

The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

8.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

9.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

10.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

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

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

13.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

14.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

15.
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

16.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

17.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

18.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

19.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

20.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

21.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

22.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

23.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

24.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

25.
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.

26.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

27.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

28.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

29.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
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

31.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

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

33.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

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

35.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

36.
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

37.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

38.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

40.
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

41.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

42.
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.

43.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

44.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

45.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

46.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

47.
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

48.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

49.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

50.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
