Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

2.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

3.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

4.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

5.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

6.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

7.
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

8.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

9.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

10.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

11.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

12.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

13.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

14.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

15.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

16.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

17.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

18.
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

19.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

20.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

21.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

22.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

23.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

24.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

25.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

26.
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

27.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

28.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

30.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

31.
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

32.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

33.
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

34.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

35.
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

36.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

37.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

38.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

39.
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

40.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

41.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

42.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

43.
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

44.
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

45.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

46.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

48.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

49.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

50.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger
