Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

2.
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

3.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

4.
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

5.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

6.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

7.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

8.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

9.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

10.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

11.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

12.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

13.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

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.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

16.
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

17.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

18.
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

19.
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

20.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

21.
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

22.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

23.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

24.
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.

25.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

29.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

30.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

31.
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.

32.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

33.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

35.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

36.
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

37.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

38.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

39.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

40.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

41.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

42.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
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

44.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

45.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

46.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

47.
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.

48.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

49.
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

50.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard
