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

2.
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

3.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

4.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

5.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

6.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

7.
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

8.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

9.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

10.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

11.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

12.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

13.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

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

15.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

16.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

17.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

18.
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

19.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

21.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

22.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

23.
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

24.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

26.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

27.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

28.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

32.
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

33.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

35.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

36.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

37.
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

38.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

39.
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.

40.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

41.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

42.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

43.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

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

45.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.

A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

47.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
