Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

2.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

3.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

4.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

5.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

9.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

10.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

11.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

12.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

13.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

20.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

21.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

22.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

23.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

25.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

26.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

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

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.
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

31.
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

32.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

33.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

34.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

35.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

36.
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

37.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

38.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

39.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

40.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

41.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

42.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

43.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

44.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

45.
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

46.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

47.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

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

49.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

Plautus, Titus Maccius
