Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

2.
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

3.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

4.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

5.
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.

6.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

7.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

8.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

9.
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.

10.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

11.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

12.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

13.
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

14.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

15.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

17.
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

18.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

19.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

20.
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.

21.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

22.
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.

23.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

24.
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

25.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

26.
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

27.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

28.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

29.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

30.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

31.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

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

33.
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

34.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
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

36.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

37.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

38.
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.

39.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

40.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

41.
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

42.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

43.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

47.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
