Best Quotes about Character

1.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

2.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

3.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

4.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

5.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

6.
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.

7.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

8.
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

9.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

10.
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

11.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

12.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

13.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

14.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

15.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

16.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

17.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

18.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

19.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

20.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

21.
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

22.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

23.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

24.
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

25.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

26.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

27.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

28.
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

29.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

30.
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

31.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

32.
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

33.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

34.
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

35.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

36.
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

37.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

38.
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.

39.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

40.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

41.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

42.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

43.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

44.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

45.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

46.
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

47.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

48.
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.

49.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

50.
