Best Quotes about Character

1.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

2.
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

3.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.

Proverb

6.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

7.
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

8.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
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

Baldwin, Faith

15.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

16.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

17.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

18.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

19.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

20.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

21.
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.

22.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

23.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

24.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

25.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

26.

Smith, Roy L.

27.
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

28.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

30.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

31.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

32.

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

The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

36.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

37.
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

Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
