Character

They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
- Virgil
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

2.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

3.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

4.
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

5.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

6.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
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

8.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

9.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

10.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

11.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

12.
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.

13.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

14.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

15.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

16.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

17.
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

18.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

19.
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

20.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

21.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

22.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

23.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

24.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

25.
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

26.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

27.
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

28.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

29.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

30.
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

31.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

32.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

33.
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.

34.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

35.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

36.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

37.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

38.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

39.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

40.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

41.
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

42.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

43.
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

44.
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

45.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

46.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

47.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

48.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

49.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

50.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord
