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.
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.

2.
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.

3.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

4.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

5.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

6.
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

7.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

8.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

9.
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

10.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

11.
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

12.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
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

14.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

15.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

16.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

17.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

18.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

20.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

21.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

22.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

23.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

24.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

25.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

26.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

28.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

29.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

30.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

31.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

32.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
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

34.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

35.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

36.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

37.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

38.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

39.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

40.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

41.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

42.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

43.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

44.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

45.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

46.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

47.
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

48.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

49.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

50.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
