Character

I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
- Forster, Edward M.
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

3.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

4.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

5.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

6.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

7.
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

8.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

9.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

10.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

11.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

12.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

13.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

14.
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.

15.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

16.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

17.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

18.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

19.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

21.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

22.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

23.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

24.
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

25.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

26.
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.

27.
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.

28.
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.

29.
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

30.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

31.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

33.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

34.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

35.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

36.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

37.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

38.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

39.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

40.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

41.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

43.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

44.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

45.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

46.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

47.
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

48.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

49.
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

50.
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.
