Character

Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
- Greeley, Horace
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.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

3.
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

4.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

6.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

7.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

8.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
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

10.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

11.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

12.
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.

13.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

14.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

15.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

16.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

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.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

19.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

20.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

21.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

22.
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

23.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

24.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

25.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

26.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

28.
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.

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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.

32.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

33.
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

34.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

35.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

36.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

37.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

38.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

39.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

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

42.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

43.
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

44.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

45.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

46.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

47.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

48.
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

49.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

50.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
