Best Quotes about Character

1.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

5.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

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

8.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

9.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

10.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

11.
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.

12.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

13.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

14.
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

15.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

16.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

17.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

18.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

19.
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

20.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

26.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

27.
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

28.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

29.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

30.
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

31.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

32.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

33.
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

34.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

35.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

36.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

37.
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

38.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

39.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

40.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

41.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

42.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

43.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

44.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

45.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

46.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

47.
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

48.
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

49.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

50.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
