Best Quotes about Character

1.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

2.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

3.
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

4.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.

Marie Leneru

7.
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

8.
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.

9.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

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

Proverb

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

13.
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

Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

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

Keller, Helen

19.

Hume, David

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

Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

Euripides

If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham
