Best Quotes about Character

1.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

2.
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

Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

4.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

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

Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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

Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

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

11.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

12.
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

13.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

14.
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

15.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

16.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

17.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

19.
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.

20.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

21.
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.

22.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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

30.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

31.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

32.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

33.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

34.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

35.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

36.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

37.
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.

38.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

39.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus
