Best Quotes about Character

1.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

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

4.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

5.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

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.
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

8.
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.

9.
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.

10.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

11.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

12.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

13.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

14.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

15.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
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

17.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

18.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

19.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

20.
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.

21.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

22.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

23.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

24.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

25.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

26.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

27.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

28.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

29.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

30.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

35.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

36.
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

37.
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

38.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

39.
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

40.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

41.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

43.
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

44.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

45.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

46.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

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

48.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

49.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

50.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse
