Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

2.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

3.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

4.
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

5.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

9.
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.

If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

10.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

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

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

Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

14.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

15.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
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

17.
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.

18.
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

19.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

20.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

21.
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

Covey, Stephen R.

23.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

24.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

25.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

26.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

27.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

28.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

29.
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

30.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

31.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

32.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

33.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

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

35.
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

36.
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.

Linall Jr. A. L.

46.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

47.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

48.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

49.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

50.
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
