- Drummond, Henry

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

3.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
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.

9.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

10.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

11.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

12.
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

13.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

14.
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

15.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

16.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

17.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

18.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

20.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

24.
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

25.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

26.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

27.
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

28.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

33.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

34.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

36.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

37.
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

38.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

39.
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.

40.
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

41.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

42.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

43.
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

44.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

45.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

46.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

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

50.
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
