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

3.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

4.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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.
William Carleton

8.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

9.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

10.
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

11.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

12.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

13.
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

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

20.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

21.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

22.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

28.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

29.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

30.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

31.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

32.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

33.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

34.
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

35.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

36.
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

37.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

38.
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

39.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

40.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

41.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

42.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

43.
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

44.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

45.
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

46.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

47.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

48.
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

49.
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.

50.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
