Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

2.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

3.
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.

4.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

5.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

6.

7.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

9.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

Akhenaton

13.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

14.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

15.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

16.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

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

18.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

19.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

20.
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

21.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

22.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

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

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

25.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

26.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

27.
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

28.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

30.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

31.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

32.
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

33.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

34.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

35.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

36.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

37.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

38.
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

39.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

40.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

41.
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.

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 like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

44.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.

Peter The Great

47.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
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

49.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

50.
