Character

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



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

2.
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

3.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

4.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

5.
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.

6.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

7.
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

8.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

9.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

10.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

11.
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

12.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

13.
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.

14.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

15.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

16.
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

17.
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.

18.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

19.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

20.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

21.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

22.
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

23.
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

24.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

25.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

26.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

27.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

28.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

29.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

30.
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

31.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

32.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

33.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

34.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

36.
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

37.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

38.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

39.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

40.
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

41.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

42.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

43.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

44.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

45.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

46.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

47.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

48.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

49.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

50.
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
