Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

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

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

It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

11.
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

12.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

13.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

14.
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

15.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

16.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

18.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

19.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

20.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

21.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

22.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

23.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

24.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

25.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

26.
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

27.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

28.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

29.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

30.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

31.
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

32.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

33.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

34.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
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

36.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
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.

38.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

Richard Greenberg

50.

Drummond, Henry
