Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
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

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

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

A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

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

8.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.

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.
Thomas, Isiah

10.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

Fitzwater, P. B.

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

13.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

14.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

15.
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

16.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

18.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

19.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

20.
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.

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.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

23.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

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

25.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

26.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

27.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

28.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

29.

Eliot, George

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.

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