Best Quotes about Character

1.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

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

5.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

6.
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.

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

Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.

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

Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

13.

Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

15.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

16.
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.

17.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
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

19.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

20.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.

People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

27.
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

28.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

29.
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

30.
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

31.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

32.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
