Best Quotes about Character

Camus, Albert

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

Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

9.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

11.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

12.

15.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

16.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

17.
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

18.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

19.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

20.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

21.
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

22.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

23.
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

24.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

26.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

Maurois, Andre

Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

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.

Jefferson, Thomas

31.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

33.
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

34.
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.

35.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

36.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.

Covey, Stephen R.

43.
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

44.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

45.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

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

47.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.

48.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

50.
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
