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

2.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

3.
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

4.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

6.
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

7.
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

8.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

9.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

10.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

11.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

12.
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

13.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

14.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

15.
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

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

17.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

18.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

19.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

20.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

21.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

22.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

23.
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.

24.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

25.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

26.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

27.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

28.
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.

29.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

30.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

31.
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

32.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

34.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

35.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

36.
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

37.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

38.
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

39.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

40.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

41.
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.

42.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

43.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

44.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

45.
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

46.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

47.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

48.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

49.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

50.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace
