Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

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

3.
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

4.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

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

9.
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

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

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

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

13.
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.

14.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

15.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

16.
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

17.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
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

19.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

20.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

21.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

22.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

24.
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

25.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

26.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

27.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

28.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

29.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

30.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

31.
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.
Boardman, George D.

32.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

33.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

34.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

35.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

36.
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

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

43.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

46.
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.

47.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

50.
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
