Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
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

3.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

Covey, Stephen R.

7.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

8.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

9.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

10.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.

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

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

13.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

14.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

15.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

16.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

17.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

18.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

19.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

20.
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

21.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

22.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

23.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

24.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

25.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

26.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

27.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
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

29.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

30.
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.

31.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

32.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

33.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

34.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

36.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Confucius

38.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

39.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

40.
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

41.
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.

42.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

43.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

44.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

45.
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

46.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

47.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

48.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

49.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

50.
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
