Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

2.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

3.
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

4.
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

5.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

6.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

7.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

8.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

9.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

10.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

11.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

12.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

13.
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

14.
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

15.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

16.
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

17.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

18.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

19.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

20.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

21.
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

22.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

23.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

24.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

25.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

26.
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

27.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

28.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

29.
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

30.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

31.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

32.
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.

33.
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.

34.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

36.
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

37.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

38.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

39.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

43.
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

44.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

45.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

46.
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

47.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

48.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell
