Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

3.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

4.
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.

5.
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

6.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

7.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

9.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

10.
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

11.
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

12.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

13.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

14.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

15.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

16.
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

17.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

18.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

19.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

20.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

21.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

22.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

23.
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

24.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

25.
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.

26.
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

27.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

28.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

29.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

30.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

31.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.

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

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

34.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

36.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Cicero

41.
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.

Hill, Napoleon
