Best Quotes about Character

1.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

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

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.

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

16.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

17.
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.

18.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

19.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.

Menander

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

24.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

25.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

26.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

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

28.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

Brown, Les

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

34.
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

35.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
