Best Quotes about Character

1.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

3.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

4.
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.

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

8.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

9.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

10.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

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.
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

13.
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

14.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

15.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

16.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

17.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

18.
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

19.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

20.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

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.
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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

26.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

27.
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.

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

31.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

32.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

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

34.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

35.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

36.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

38.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.

Bounds, E. M.

44.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

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.

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

Virgil

49.
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.

50.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon
