Character

The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
- Smith, Roy L.
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

2.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

3.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

4.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

5.
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

6.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

7.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

8.
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

9.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

10.
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

11.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

12.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

13.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

14.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

18.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

19.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

20.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

21.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

22.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

26.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

27.
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

28.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

29.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

30.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

31.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

35.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

36.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

37.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

38.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

39.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

40.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

41.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

42.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

43.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

44.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

45.
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

46.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

47.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

48.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

49.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

50.
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
