Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

3.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

4.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

5.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

6.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

7.
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. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

8.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

9.
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

10.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

11.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

12.
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

13.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

14.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

15.
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

16.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

17.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

18.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

19.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

20.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

21.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

22.
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

23.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

25.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

26.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

27.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

28.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

29.
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.

30.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

31.
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

32.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

33.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

34.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

35.
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

36.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

37.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

38.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

Shakespeare, William

Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.

A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

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

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

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
