Character

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



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

3.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

4.
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.

5.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

6.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

7.
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.

8.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

9.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

10.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

11.
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

12.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

13.
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

14.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

18.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

19.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

20.
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

21.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

22.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

23.
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.

24.
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

25.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

26.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

27.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

28.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

32.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

33.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

35.
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

36.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

37.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

38.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

39.
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.

40.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

41.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

43.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

44.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

45.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

46.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

47.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

48.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

49.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

50.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
