Best Quotes about Character

1.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

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

4.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

6.
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.

7.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

Richard Greenberg

14.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

15.
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

16.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

19.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

20.
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

21.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

22.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

23.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

Boardman, George D.

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

Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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

29.
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.

30.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

31.
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.
