Best Quotes about Character
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.

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
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.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
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.
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
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.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
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.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
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.
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.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
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
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
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.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
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.
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.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
