Character

An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
- Pandita, Saskya

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

2.
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

3.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

4.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

5.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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

8.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

9.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

10.
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

11.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

12.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

13.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

14.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

15.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

16.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

17.
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

18.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

19.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

20.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

21.
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

22.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

23.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

24.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

25.
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

26.
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.

27.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

28.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

29.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

30.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
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

32.
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.

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

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

35.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

36.
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

37.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

38.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

39.
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

40.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

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

43.
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.

44.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

45.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.

46.
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

47.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.

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