Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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.

4.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

5.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

6.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

7.
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.

8.
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

9.
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

10.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

11.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

12.
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

13.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

14.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

15.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

16.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

17.
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

18.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

19.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

20.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

21.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

22.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

23.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

24.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

25.
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

26.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

27.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

28.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

29.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

30.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

31.
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

32.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

33.
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

34.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

35.
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

36.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

38.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

39.
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

40.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

41.
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.

42.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

43.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

44.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

45.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

46.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

47.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

48.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

49.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

50.
Character is a victory, not a gift.
