Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

2.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

3.
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

4.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

5.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

6.
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

7.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

8.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

9.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

14.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

15.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

16.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

17.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

18.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

19.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

20.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

21.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

26.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

27.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

28.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

29.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

30.
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

31.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

32.
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.

33.
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

34.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

35.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

36.
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.

37.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

38.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
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

Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

41.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

42.
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

43.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

44.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

45.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

46.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

47.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

48.
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

49.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

50.
