Best Quotes about Character

1.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

2.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

6.
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.

7.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

8.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

9.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

10.
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

11.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

Greeley, Horace

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

16.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

17.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

18.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

20.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

21.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

22.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

23.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

24.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

25.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

26.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

29.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

30.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

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

32.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

33.
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

34.
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.

35.
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

36.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

37.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

38.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

40.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

41.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

42.
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

43.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

44.
A rich man has no need of character.

Francis, Clarence

49.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.

50.
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
