Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

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.
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.

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

Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

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

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

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

Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.

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

15.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

16.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

19.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

20.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

21.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

22.
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.

23.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

24.
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

25.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

30.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

31.
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.

32.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

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

34.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

35.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

36.
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

37.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

38.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

39.
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

40.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

41.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

42.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

43.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

44.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

45.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

46.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

47.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

48.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

49.
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

50.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace
