Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

2.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

3.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

4.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

5.
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.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

7.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

8.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

9.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

10.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

11.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

12.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

13.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

15.
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

16.
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.

17.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

18.
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

19.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

20.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

22.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

23.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

24.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

25.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

26.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

27.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

28.
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.

29.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

30.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

32.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

33.
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

34.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

38.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

39.
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.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
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

43.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

44.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

45.
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

46.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

47.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.

Hill, Napoleon

49.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

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
