Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
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

3.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

4.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

5.
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

6.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

8.
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.

9.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

10.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

11.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

12.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

13.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

14.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

15.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

16.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

17.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

18.
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

19.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

20.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

21.
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.

22.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

23.
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.

24.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

25.
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

26.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

27.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

28.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

29.
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.

30.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

31.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

32.
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.

33.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

34.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

35.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

36.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

37.
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

38.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

39.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

40.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

41.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

42.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

43.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

44.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

45.
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

46.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

47.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

48.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

49.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

50.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin
