Best Quotes about Character

1.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

2.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

3.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

4.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
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.

6.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

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

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

13.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

14.
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

15.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
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

17.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

19.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

21.
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

22.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

23.
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

24.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

25.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

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

27.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

28.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

29.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

30.
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

31.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

32.
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

33.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

34.
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

35.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

36.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

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.

38.
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

39.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

40.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

41.
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

42.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

43.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

44.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

45.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

46.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

47.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

48.
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

49.
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

50.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
