Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

3.
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.

4.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

5.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

6.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

7.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

8.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

9.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

10.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

11.
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.

12.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

13.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

14.
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

15.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

16.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

17.
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

18.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

19.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

20.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

21.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

22.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

23.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

24.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

25.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

26.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

27.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
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

29.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

30.
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

31.
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

32.
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.

33.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

34.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

Carlyle, Thomas

38.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

39.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

40.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

41.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

42.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

43.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

44.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

45.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

46.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

47.
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

48.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

49.

O'Shea

Voltaire
