Best Quotes about Character

1.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

2.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

8.
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

9.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

10.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

11.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

12.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

13.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

14.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

15.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

16.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

17.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

18.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

19.
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

20.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

21.
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

22.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

24.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

25.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

26.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

27.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

28.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

29.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

30.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

31.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

32.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

33.
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

34.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

35.
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

36.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

37.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

38.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

39.
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

40.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

41.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

42.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

44.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

48.
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

49.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

50.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John
