Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

3.
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

4.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

5.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

6.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

7.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

8.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

9.
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

10.
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.

11.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

12.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

13.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

14.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

15.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

16.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

17.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

18.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

19.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

20.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

21.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

22.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

24.
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.
William Carleton

25.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

26.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

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.
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.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

30.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

31.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

32.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

33.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

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.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

36.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

37.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

38.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

39.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

40.
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

41.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

42.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

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.

44.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

45.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

46.
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

47.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

48.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

49.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

50.
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.
