Motivational Quotes

Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

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

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

7.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

8.
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

9.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

Proverb, African

11.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

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

Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

14.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

15.
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

16.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

17.
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.

18.
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

19.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

20.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

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

23.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
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

25.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

Aquinas, St. Thomas

Jefferson, Thomas

29.
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

30.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

31.
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

32.
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

Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.

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

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

During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.

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