Best Quotes about Character

1.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

2.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

3.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

4.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

5.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

6.
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

7.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

8.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

9.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

10.
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.

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

14.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

15.
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

16.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

17.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

18.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

19.
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

20.
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

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

23.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

25.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

26.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

27.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

28.
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

29.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

30.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

31.
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

32.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

33.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

34.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

37.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

38.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

39.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

40.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

41.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

42.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

43.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

44.
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

45.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

46.
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.

47.
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

48.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

49.
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

50.
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
