Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

2.
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

3.
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.

4.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

5.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

6.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

7.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

8.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

9.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

10.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

11.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

12.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

13.
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

14.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

15.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

19.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

20.
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

21.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

22.
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.

23.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

24.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

25.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

26.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

27.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

28.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

29.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

30.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

31.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

32.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

33.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

34.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

35.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

36.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

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

38.
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

39.
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

40.
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

41.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

42.
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

43.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

44.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

45.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

46.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha
