Best Quotes about Character

1.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

2.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

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

4.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

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

Akhenaton

18.
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

19.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

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

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.

30.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
