Best Quotes about Character

1.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

2.
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.

3.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

4.
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

5.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

7.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

8.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

11.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

12.
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

13.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

14.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

15.
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.

16.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

17.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

18.
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

19.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

20.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

21.
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

22.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

23.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

24.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

25.
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

26.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

27.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

28.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

29.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

30.
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.

31.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

32.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

33.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

34.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

35.
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

36.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

37.
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

38.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

39.
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

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

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

42.

Thomas, Isiah

43.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

44.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

45.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

46.
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

47.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

48.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

49.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

50.
