Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

3.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

4.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

5.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

6.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

7.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

8.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

9.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

10.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

11.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

12.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

13.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

14.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

15.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

16.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

18.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

19.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

20.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

21.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

22.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
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

25.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

26.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

31.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

32.
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

33.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

34.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

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

39.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

40.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

41.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

42.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

43.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

44.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

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