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.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

2.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

3.

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.

5.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

6.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

7.
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

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

9.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

10.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Royal, Darrell

15.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

16.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

18.
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

19.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

20.

Hall, Manly

Drummond, Henry

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

24.
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

25.
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.

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

27.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

28.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

29.
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

30.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

32.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

33.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

34.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

35.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.

Churchill, Winston
