Character

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.
Character Motivational Quotes



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.
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

3.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.
Thomas, Isiah

5.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

6.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

7.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

8.
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

9.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

10.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

11.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

12.
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

13.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

14.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

15.
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

16.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

17.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

18.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

19.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

20.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

21.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

22.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

23.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

24.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

25.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

26.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

27.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

28.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

29.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

30.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

31.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

32.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

33.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

34.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

35.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

36.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

37.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

38.
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

39.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

40.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

41.
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

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

46.
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

47.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

48.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

49.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

50.
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.
