Best Quotes about Character

1.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

2.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

3.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

4.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

5.
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

6.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

7.
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

8.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

Voltaire

Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

13.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

14.
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

15.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

16.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

17.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

18.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

19.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

20.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

21.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

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

23.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

24.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

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

30.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

31.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

32.
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

33.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

34.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

Peter The Great

40.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

41.
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.

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

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

49.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

50.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
