Character

We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
- Maritain, Jacques

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

3.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
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

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

6.
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

7.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
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

9.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

10.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

11.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

12.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

13.
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

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

15.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

16.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

17.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

18.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

19.
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

20.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

21.
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

22.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

23.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

24.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

25.
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

26.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

27.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

28.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

29.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

30.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

31.
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.

32.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

33.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

38.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

39.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

40.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

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

42.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

43.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

44.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

45.
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.

46.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

47.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

48.
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.

49.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

50.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
