Best Quotes about Character

1.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

2.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

3.
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

4.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

5.
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

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

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

8.
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.

Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

10.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

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

12.
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

13.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

14.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

15.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

Bulger, William M.

21.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

22.
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

23.
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

24.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

25.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

26.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

28.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

29.
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

30.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

31.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
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

33.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

34.
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

35.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

36.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

37.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

38.
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

39.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

40.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

41.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

42.
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

43.
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.

44.
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.

45.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

46.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

47.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

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

50.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya
