Best Quotes about Character

1.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

2.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

3.
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

4.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

5.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

6.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

7.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

8.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

9.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

10.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

11.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

12.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

13.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

14.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

15.
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

16.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
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.

18.
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.

19.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

20.
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

21.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

22.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

23.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

24.
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

25.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

26.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

27.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

28.
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.

29.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

30.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

31.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

32.
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.

33.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

35.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

36.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

37.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

38.
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

39.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

40.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

41.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

42.
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

43.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

44.
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

45.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

46.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

47.
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.
Francis, Clarence

48.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

49.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African
