Best Quotes about Character

1.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

2.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

3.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

4.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

5.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

6.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

11.
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.

12.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

13.
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

14.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

15.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

16.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

17.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
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

19.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

20.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

21.
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

22.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

23.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

24.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

28.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

29.
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

30.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

31.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

32.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

33.
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.

34.
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

35.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

36.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

37.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

38.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

39.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

40.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

41.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

Lowell, James Russell

Jefferson, Thomas

44.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

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

46.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

47.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

48.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

49.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

50.
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
