Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

2.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

3.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

5.
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.

6.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

7.
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

8.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

9.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

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.
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

12.
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.

13.
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.

14.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

15.
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

16.
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.

17.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

18.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

19.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

20.
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

21.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

22.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

23.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

24.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

25.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

27.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

28.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

29.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

30.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

31.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

32.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

33.
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

34.
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

35.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

42.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

43.
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.

44.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

45.
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

46.
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.

I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

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

Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese
