Sample Quotes on Character:

Character matters. Researchers concerned with academic-achievement gaps have begun to study, with increasing interest and enthusiasm, a set of personal qualities—often referred to as noncognitive skills, or character strengths—that include resilience, conscientiousness, optimism, self-control, and grit. These capacities generally aren’t captured by our ubiquitous standardized tests, but they seem to make a big difference in the academic success of children, especially low-income children.

—Paul Tough

In Japanese schools, the students don’t take any exams until they reach grade four (the age of 10). They just take small tests. It is believed that the goal for the first 3 years of school is not to judge the child’s knowledge or learning, but to establish good manners and to develop their character. Children are taught to respect other people and to be gentle to animals and nature. They also learn how to be generous, compassionate, and empathetic. Besides this, the kids are taught qualities like grit, self-control, and justice.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

—Malcolm S. Forbes

--Kathryn B. Johnson

Get to know two things about a man—how he earns his money and how he spends it—and you have the clue to his character, for you have a searchlight that shows up the inmost recesses of his soul. You know all you need to know about his standards, his motives, his driving desires, his real religion.

--Robert James McCracken

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

--Martin Luther King, Jr.

The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out.

--Thomas Babington Macaulay

Character is not cut in marble; it is not something solid and unalterable. It is something living and changing, and may become diseased as our bodies do.

--George Eliot

The character is like white paper; if once blotted, it can hardly ever be made to appear white as before.

--Joel Hawes

The fate of the country...does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot box once a year, but on what kind of man you drop from your chamber into the street every morning.

--Henry David Thoreau

Character is what you have left when you’ve lost everything else.

--Patricia Harris

There is no such thing as a ‘self-made’ man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.

--George Matthew Adams

Your choice of friends reflects your character.

--Dan L. Miller

There are two beings who assess character instantly by looking into the eyes,—dogs and children. If a dog not naturally possessed of the devil will not come to you after he has looked you in the face, you ought to go home and examine your conscience; and if a little child, from any other reason than mere timidity, looks you in the face, and then draws back and will not come to your knee, go home and look deeper yet into your conscience.

—Woodrow Wilson

The main thing is to care. Care very hard, even if it is only a game you are playing.

—Billie Jean King
