Best Quotes about Character

1.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

2.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

3.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

4.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

5.
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.

6.
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
Akhenaton

7.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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.

13.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

14.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

15.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

16.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

18.
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

19.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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

If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

22.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

23.
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.
Confucius

24.
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

25.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

26.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

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

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

34.
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
