Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

3.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

4.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

5.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

6.
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

7.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

8.
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.
Arran, Earl of

9.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

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.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

12.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

13.
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

14.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

15.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
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

17.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

18.
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

19.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

20.
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

21.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

22.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

23.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

24.
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.

25.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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

27.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

28.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

29.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

30.
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

31.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

32.
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.

33.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

38.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

39.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

40.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

41.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

42.
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.

43.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

44.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

45.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

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

47.
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

48.

George Santayana
