Best Quotes about Character
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Character is victory organized.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
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.
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.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
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.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Integrity has no need of rules.

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
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
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
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.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
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
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.

Bounds, E. M.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.

King Jr. Martin Luther
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
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
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
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.

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.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
