You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.

Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

4.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

5.
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

6.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

7.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

8.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

9.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

10.
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

11.
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.

12.
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

13.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

14.
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

15.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

16.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

17.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
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

19.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

20.
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

21.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

22.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

23.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

25.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

26.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

27.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

28.
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

29.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

30.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

31.
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.

32.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

33.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

34.
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

35.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

36.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

37.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

38.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

39.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

40.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

41.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

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

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

If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.

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

50.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert
