Best Quotes about Character

1.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

3.
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.

4.
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

5.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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

7.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

9.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

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.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

12.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

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

14.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

15.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

16.
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

17.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

19.
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

20.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

21.
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

22.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

23.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

24.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

25.
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

26.
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

27.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

28.
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

29.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

30.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

31.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

35.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

36.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

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

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

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

41.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

42.
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.

A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
