Best Quotes about Character

1.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

2.
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

3.
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.

4.
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.

5.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

6.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

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.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

9.
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

Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

11.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

12.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

13.
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

14.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

15.
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

16.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

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 appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

19.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

21.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

22.
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

23.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

24.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

25.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

26.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

27.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

28.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

29.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

30.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

31.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

32.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

33.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

34.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

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

Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

39.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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

41.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

42.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

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

44.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

45.
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

46.
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
