Character

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.

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

4.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

5.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

6.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

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

8.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

9.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

11.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

12.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

13.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

14.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

15.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

16.
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.

17.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

18.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

19.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

20.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

21.
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

22.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

23.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

25.
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

26.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

27.
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

28.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

29.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

30.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

31.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

32.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

33.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
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

35.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

36.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

37.
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.

38.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

39.
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

40.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

41.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

42.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

43.
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

44.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

45.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

46.
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

47.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

48.
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

49.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

50.
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.
