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

2.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

3.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

4.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

5.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

6.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

7.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

8.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

9.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

10.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

11.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

12.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

13.
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.

14.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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.

18.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

19.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

20.
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

21.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

22.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

23.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

24.
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

25.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

26.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

28.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

29.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

30.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

31.
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

32.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

37.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

38.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

39.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

40.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

41.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

42.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

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

44.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
