Character

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



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

2.
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

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

6.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

7.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

8.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

9.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

10.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

11.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

12.
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

13.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

14.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

15.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

16.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

17.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
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

19.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

20.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

21.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

22.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

23.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

24.
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

25.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

26.
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.

27.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

31.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

32.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

33.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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.

37.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

38.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

42.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

43.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

44.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

45.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

46.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

47.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

48.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

49.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

50.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran
