Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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
Akhenaton

2.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

3.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

4.
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.

Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

7.
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

13.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

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

15.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

16.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.

Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

19.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

Lois McMaster Bujold

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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.

37.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.

Keller, Helen

Proverb, Chinese

40.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

41.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

42.
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.

Proverb, Hebrew

49.
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.
