Motivational Quotes

Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

1.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

2.
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.

3.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

4.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

5.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

6.
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.

7.
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.

8.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

9.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

10.
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

11.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

12.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

13.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

14.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

15.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

16.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

17.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

19.
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

20.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

21.
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

22.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

23.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

24.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

25.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

26.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

27.
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.

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

30.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

31.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

32.
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

33.
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.

34.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

35.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

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

38.
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

39.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

40.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

41.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

42.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

43.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

44.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

45.
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

46.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
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

48.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

49.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

50.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion
