Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

2.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

3.
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.

4.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

5.
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.

6.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

7.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

8.
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

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

10.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

11.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

12.
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

13.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

14.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

15.
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

16.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

17.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

18.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

19.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

20.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

21.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

22.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

23.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

24.
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

25.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

26.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

27.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

28.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

29.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

30.
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

31.
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.

32.
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

33.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

34.
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

35.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

36.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

37.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

38.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

39.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.

Jefferson, Thomas

42.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

43.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

44.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

45.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

46.
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

47.
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

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

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

50.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.
