Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

3.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

4.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

5.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

6.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

7.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

8.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

9.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

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

11.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

12.
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.

13.
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

14.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

15.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

19.
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

20.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

21.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

22.
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

23.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

24.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

25.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

26.
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

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

28.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

29.
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

30.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

31.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

32.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

33.
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

34.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

35.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

36.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

37.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

41.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

42.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

43.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

44.
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

45.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

46.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

47.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

48.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

49.
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.

50.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush
