Best Quotes about Character

1.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

2.
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

3.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

4.
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

5.
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

6.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

7.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

8.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

9.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

10.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

14.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

15.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

16.
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

17.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

18.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

19.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

20.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

21.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

22.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

23.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

24.
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

25.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

26.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

27.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

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

29.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

30.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

32.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

33.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

34.
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

35.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

36.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

37.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

38.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

39.
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.

40.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

41.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

42.
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

43.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

44.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

45.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

46.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

47.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

48.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

49.
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.

50.
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.
