Best Quotes about Character

1.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

2.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

3.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

7.
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

8.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

9.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

10.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

11.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

12.
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.

13.
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

14.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

15.
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.

16.
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

17.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

18.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

19.
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

20.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

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

24.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

25.
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

26.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

27.
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

28.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

29.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

30.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

31.
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

32.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

33.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

34.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

35.
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.

36.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

37.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

38.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

39.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

40.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

41.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

42.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

43.
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

44.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

45.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

46.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

47.
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

48.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

49.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

50.
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
