Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

3.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

4.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

5.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

6.
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

7.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

8.
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.

9.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

10.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

Chambers, Oswald

14.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

15.
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.

16.
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.

17.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

19.
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

20.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

21.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

22.
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

23.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

24.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

25.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

26.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

27.
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

Lois McMaster Bujold

33.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

34.
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

35.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

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