Best Quotes about Character

1.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

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.
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.

4.
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

5.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

6.
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

7.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

8.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

9.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

10.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

11.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

12.
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.

13.
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.

14.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

15.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

16.
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

17.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

18.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

19.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

20.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

21.
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.

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

26.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

27.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

31.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

32.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

33.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

34.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

35.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

36.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

37.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

38.
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.

39.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

40.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
