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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

2.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

3.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

4.
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

5.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

6.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

7.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

8.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

9.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

10.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

11.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

12.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

13.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

14.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

15.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

16.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

17.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

18.
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.

19.
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

20.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

21.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

22.
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

23.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

24.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

25.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
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

27.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

28.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

29.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

30.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

31.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

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
