Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

2.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

3.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

4.
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

5.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

6.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

7.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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.

11.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

12.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

13.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

14.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

15.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

16.
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

17.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

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

20.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

21.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

22.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

23.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

24.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

25.
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

26.
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

27.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

28.
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

29.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

30.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

31.
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

32.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

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

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

38.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

39.
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.

40.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

41.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
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.

43.
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.

44.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

48.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

49.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

50.
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
