Best Quotes about Character

1.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

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

5.
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

6.
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

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

8.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

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

10.
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.

11.
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

12.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

13.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

14.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

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.

16.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

Disraeli, Benjamin

19.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

20.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

21.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

22.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

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

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

25.
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.

26.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

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

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

29.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

30.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

33.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

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.

36.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

37.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

38.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

39.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

40.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

41.
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.

42.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character

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

48.
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.

49.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

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
