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

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

2.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

3.
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

4.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

5.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

6.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

7.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

8.
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.

9.
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

10.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

12.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

13.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

14.
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

15.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

16.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

17.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

18.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

20.
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

21.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

22.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

23.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

24.
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.
Churchill, Winston

25.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

29.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

30.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

31.
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

32.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

34.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

35.
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

36.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

37.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

38.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

39.
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.

40.
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

41.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

42.
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.

43.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
