Best Quotes about Character

1.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

2.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

3.
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

4.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

5.
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.

6.
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

7.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

8.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

9.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

10.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

11.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

12.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

14.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

15.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

17.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

18.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

19.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

20.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

21.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

22.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

23.
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

24.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

25.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

26.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

27.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

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

30.
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

31.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

32.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

34.
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.

35.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

36.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

37.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

38.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

39.
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.

40.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

41.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

42.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

43.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

44.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

45.
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.

46.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

47.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

49.
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.
