Best Quotes about Character

1.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

2.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

6.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

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

8.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

9.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.

Beecher, Henry Ward

11.

Marie Leneru

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

14.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

15.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

16.
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.

17.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

18.
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

19.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

20.
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

21.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

22.
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

23.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

27.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

28.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

29.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

30.
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.

31.
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.

32.
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

33.
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

34.
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

35.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

36.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

37.
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.

38.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

39.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

40.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

41.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

42.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

46.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

47.
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.

48.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

49.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

50.
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
