Best Quotes about Character

1.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

2.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

3.
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.

4.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

5.
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.

6.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

8.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

9.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

10.
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

11.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

12.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

13.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

14.
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

15.
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

16.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

17.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

18.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

19.
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.

20.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

21.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

22.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

23.
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.
Wooden, John

24.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

25.
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

26.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

27.
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

28.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

29.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

30.
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.

31.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

32.
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

33.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

34.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

36.
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

37.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

38.
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

39.
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

40.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

41.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

43.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

44.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

45.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

46.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

47.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

48.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

49.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
