Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

2.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

3.
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

4.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

5.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

6.
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

7.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

8.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

9.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

10.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

11.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

12.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

13.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

14.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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.

20.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

21.
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

22.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

23.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
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

25.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

26.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

27.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

28.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

29.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

30.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

31.
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.

32.
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

33.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

34.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

35.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

36.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

37.
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

38.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

39.
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.

40.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

41.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

42.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

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

I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.

Smith, Roy L.

46.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

47.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

48.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

49.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

50.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
