Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

3.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

4.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

5.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

9.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

10.
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

11.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

12.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

13.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

14.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

15.
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

16.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

17.
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

18.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

19.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

20.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

21.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

22.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

23.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

24.
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.
Rohn, Jim

25.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

26.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

27.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

28.
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

29.
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

30.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

31.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

32.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

36.
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

37.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

38.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
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.

40.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

41.
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

Estrange, L.

46.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

47.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

48.
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

49.
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.

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
