Character

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.

Best Quotes about Character

1.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

2.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

3.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

6.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

7.
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

8.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

9.
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.

Taylor, Bayard

Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

13.
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

14.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

18.
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.

19.
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.

20.

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

Elihu Burritt

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

26.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

27.
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

Greeley, Horace

33.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

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

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

36.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

37.

Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

40.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

Hume, David

42.
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

43.
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

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

45.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.
