Best Quotes about Character

1.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

2.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

3.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

4.
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

5.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

7.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

8.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

9.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

10.
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.

11.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

12.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

13.
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

14.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

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.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

17.
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

18.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

19.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

20.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

21.
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.

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

25.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

26.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

27.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

28.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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.
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

31.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

32.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

33.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

34.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

35.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

36.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

37.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

38.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

39.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

40.
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

41.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

42.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

44.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

45.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

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

48.
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.

49.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

50.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava
