Character

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



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

4.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

5.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

6.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

7.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

8.
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

9.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

11.
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.

12.
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

13.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

14.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

15.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

16.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

17.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

18.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

19.
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

20.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

21.
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

22.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

23.
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.

24.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

25.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

26.
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

27.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

28.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

29.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

30.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

31.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

32.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

33.
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

34.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

35.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

36.
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.

37.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

38.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

39.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

40.
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

41.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

42.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

43.
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

44.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

45.
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

46.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

47.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

48.
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

49.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

50.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
