Character

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.
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

5.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

6.
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

7.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

8.
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

9.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

10.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

11.
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

12.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

13.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

14.
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

15.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

16.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

17.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

22.
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

23.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

24.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

25.
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.

26.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

27.
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.

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

31.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

32.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

33.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

34.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

36.
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

37.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

38.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

39.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

40.
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

41.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

42.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

43.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

44.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

45.
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

46.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

47.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

48.
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.

49.
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

50.
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
