Best Quotes about Character

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

3.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

4.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

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.

6.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

7.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

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

Merikare

Michener, James A.

13.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

14.
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

15.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.

Abraham Lincoln

22.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

23.

At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

24.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

27.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

28.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur
