Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

2.
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

3.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

4.
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.

5.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

6.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

7.
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

8.
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

9.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

10.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

11.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

12.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

13.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

14.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

15.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

16.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

17.
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.

18.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

19.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

20.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

21.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

22.
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

23.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

24.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

25.
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.

26.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

27.
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.

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

29.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

30.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

31.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

32.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

33.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

34.
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

35.
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

36.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

37.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

38.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

39.

44.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

45.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

46.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

47.
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
