Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

2.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

3.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

4.
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.

5.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

6.
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

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

8.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

9.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

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

11.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

13.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

14.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

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

16.
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

17.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

18.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

19.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

20.
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

21.

O'Shea

22.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

23.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

24.
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

25.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

26.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

27.
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.

28.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

29.
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.

30.
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

31.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

32.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

33.
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

34.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

35.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

36.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

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

Landers, Ann

40.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

41.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

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

47.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
