Best Quotes about Character

1.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

2.
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

3.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

7.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

8.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

9.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

10.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

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

12.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

13.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

14.
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.

15.
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

16.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

20.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

21.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

22.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

23.
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

24.
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

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.
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

27.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

28.
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

29.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

30.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

31.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

32.
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.

33.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

34.
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

35.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

36.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

37.
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

38.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

43.
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

44.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.

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

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

47.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

48.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

49.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

50.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon
