Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

3.
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.

4.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

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

6.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

7.
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.

8.
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

9.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

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

12.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

14.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

15.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

16.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

17.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

18.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

19.
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

20.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

21.
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

22.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

23.
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

24.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

25.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

26.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

27.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

28.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

29.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

30.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

31.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

32.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
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

34.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

35.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

36.
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

37.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

38.
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.

39.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

Hermann Hesse

50.
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
