To be 100% at all times is like a mirage in the desert of frustration. Enjoy your conquest and rest your mind. This will never be in vain.
1 Minuto na Palma da Mão
Achievements must be highlights and not forgotten. So you always will have to rely in something on your frustrations.

Faith in God is optional, but faith in the self
Abhijit Naskar
I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth, nor did I have access to information like you do today via the internet. I had to learn everything the hard way. And I had to become a scientist the old-fashioned way, which is, not through academia, but through trial and error. And my hardship opened up unforeseen gateways of perception in my mind. And through these gateways, today the whole world is able to see its inner self.

I'd rather listen to what you think of yourself, than what the whole world has to say about you.

Have faith in yourself. Have faith in the human first, then God if you want.

You don't need to see yourself through the delusional eyes of the society. It's the society that needs to see you, through your eyes.

The purpose of education should be character-building.

I believe in you my friend, so much so, that if any of my ideas make you feel belittled in any manner, I want you to rise against me and throw my work into the fire. Any notion, any book, any institution that weakens the self instead of strengthening it, must be discarded at ones.
Abhijit Naskar
It is only when you are confident about your own self, that the society begins to hail you the way you want.

You may turn every house in your neighborhood into a charity center, you may fill the land with soup-kitchens, but the misery of humans will still continue to exist until the character of humanity changes.

Once your character is poured with vigor and your attitude radiates confidence, there is no power in any external force to have any form of authority over you.

Abigail Adams
You tell me that you sometimes view the dark side of your Diana, and there no doubt you discover many Spots which I rather wish were erased, than conceal'd from you. Do not judge by this, that your opinion is an indifferent thing to me, (were it so, I should look forward with a heavey Heart,) but it is far otherways, for I had rather stand fair there, and be thought well of by Lysander than by the greater part of the World besides. I would fain hope that those faults which you discover, proceed more, from a wrong Head, than a bad Heart. E'er long May I be connected with a Friend from whose Example I may form a more faultless conduct, and whose benevolent mind will lead him to pardon, what he cannot amend.
Abigail Van Buren
The best index to a person's character is how he treats people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people who can't fight back.

How he could be a good user of LSD, I asked, And know about the spiritual dimension - all that sort of thing - and still be a crook? I don't understand.Then it's time you did. Psychedelic drugs don't change you - they don't change you character - unless you want to be changed. They enable change; they can't impose it...

Nations, as well as men, almost always betray the most prominent features of their future destiny in their earliest years.

Only stagnant people get stuck because they don't attempt to move at all.
Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Tough times don't last always. Your hard times are there to shape you and develop your character. It causes you to become more aware of life and you develop an attitude of gratitude. Don't lose hope because it gets better.
Amelia Mangan
Stanley forced a smile to his lips at the memory of the onesided romance; it was silly, after all, a stupid childhood crush. Who'd fall in love with a fictional character? That was the kind of thing you laughed about as an adult. Or at least Harriet had thought so. He couldn't quite do it, though. Couldn't quite see it as a joke. It had felt too real, too raw and wild and fierce, for him todismiss it even now. It was love, of a sort, stunted and unformed as it was. For a time, it had kept him sane.
Amit Kalantri
Father has a strengthening character like the sun and mother has a soothing temper like the moon.

Success needs vision to see, passion to transcend, patience to withstand and the character to overcome failures.

The tower of success stands on the pillars of vision, action, patience and the character to withstand criticisms.

Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.

She knows her timing, always knows. The time to strike or the time to starve. Her eyes as a clock, she watches she waits she learns, and in the second she blinks, she changes her mind just like that.

FACING LIFE'S TRIALS, CHALLENGES AND DIFFICULTIES, IS THE BEST WAY TO DEAL WITH LIFE.
Austin Fischer
The character of Jesus is the character of God. God would never do something Jesus would find morally reprehensible, so if you can't find it in Jesus, then you really ought to think twice before you claim you've found it in God.
Ayn Rand
Love should be treated like a business deal, but every business deal has its own terms and its own currency. And in love, the currency is virtue. You love people not for what you do for them or what they do for you. You love them for the values, the virtues, which they have achieved in their own character.
Bamigboye Olurotimi
Your good character and attitude should be your message to the world.

To create oneself as a Leader the foundation of Integrity must be laid, built with character and aspirations of greatness
Carl R White
Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is how we let them really know us.
Cassandra Clare
Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.

Charles Baxter
There is such a thing as the poetry of a mistake, and when you say, Mistakes were made, you deprive an action of its poetry, and you sound like a weasel.
Charles Simmons
A person's character is but half formed till after wedlock.
Charles W. Chesnutt
As man sows, so shall he reap. In works of fiction, such men are sometimes converted. More often, in real life, they do not change their natures until they are converted into dust.

A man's true character comes out when he's drunk.
Charlotte Brontë
I am not an angel, I asserted; and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself.
Charlotte Brontë
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.
Charlotte Brontë
I am not an angel,' I asserted; 'and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself. Mr. Rochester, you must neither expect nor exact anything celestial of me - for you will not get it, any more than I shall get it of you: which I do not at all anticipate.
Charlotte Brontë
And as for the vague something --- was it a sinister or a sorrowful, a designing or a desponding expression? --- that opened upon a careful observer, now and then, in his eye, and closed again before one could fathom the strange depth partially disclosed; that something which used to make me fear and shrink, as if I had been wandering amongst volcanic-looking hills, and had suddenly felt the ground quiver, and seen it gape: that something, I, at intervals, beheld still; and with throbbing heart, but not with palsied nerves. Instead of wishing to shun, I longed only to dare --- to divine it; and I thought Miss Ingram happy, because one day she might look into the abyss at her leisure, explore its secrets and analyse their nature.
Charlotte Eriksson
I was free with every road as my home. No limitations and no commitments. But then summer passed and winter came and I fell short for safety. I fell for its spell, slowly humming me to sleep, because I was tired and small, too weak to take or handle those opinions and views, attacking me from every angle. Against my art, against my self, against my very way of living. I collected my thoughts, my few possessions and built isolated walls around my values and character. I protected my own definition of beauty and success like a treasure at the bottom of the sea, for no one saw what I saw, or felt the same as I did, and so I wanted to keep to myself. You hide to protect yourself.

Which of us has not felt that the character we are reading in the printed page is more real than the person standing beside us?
Craig D. Lounsbrough
To fall down is to face the weakness of my humanity, test the mettle of my character, and push the limits of my strength. Therefore, falling down will tell me who I am far more clearly than most things I might learn when I'm standing up.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Humility is the greatest shaper of souls and crafter of character, for it wipes away all the grandiose things that we spend so much of our lives pretending to be, so that we can spend all of our lives being the exceptional person that we were actually created to be.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
I am thankful that there are those among us who have sacrificed dearly on behalf of us. And I ardently pray to God that I might be less like myself and more like them.
Criss Jami
You speak rather poorly of God when praising Him, or when wanting to praise Him, only during that which you perceive to be your highest of moments. That is many a reason behind unbelief altogether: the failed attempt to control God, to lower His standards to one's own level of understanding in doubt of His foresight and omniscience, His goodness and power. He wants to know if you are faithful enough to praise Him even when, to you, all seems lost.
Criss Jami
Perhaps not everything happens for a reason. That is, until you make it so; because for everything there is a season, which can, in fact, become beautiful.
Criss Jami
Authors can write stories without people assuming that they are autobiographies, but songwriters and poets are often considered to be the characters in their works. I like Michelangelo's vision, 'I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
Criss Jami
Grudges are for those who insist that they are owed something; forgiveness, however, is for those who are substantial enough to move on.
Criss Jami
If your doctrine changed for the better yet your character changed for the worse, you changed for the worse.
Criss Jami
The petty man wants to use God for himself; the ambitious man wants God to use him for God.
Criss Jami
Character that is fruit-producing can be summed up in the mastery of these 5 qualities: morals, but a sense of humor; love, but respect for criticism; intelligence without pretense; humility without self-loathing; and a mind open, but with solid convictions.
Criss Jami
When you mature in your relationship with God you realize how suffering and patience are like eating your spiritual vegetables.
Criss Jami
Easily mistaken, it is not about a love for adversity, it is about knowing a strength and a faith so great that adversity, in all its adverse manifestations, hardly even exists.
Criss Jami
Some days you feel like you're the worst of sinners; others like you're the most righteous person on earth. I am convinced that the former is when you're closest to God.
Criss Jami
Science is knowledge meeting humility meeting curiosity: ever-evolving, always learning. Atheism is often but knowledge meeting arrogance: a masquerade under the wing of the beauty of science. Religion is infamously a weight under the one wing; then under the other is atheism, the championed masquerade.
Criss Jami
It is a healthy approach not to expect persons to turn out precisely how you would have wished.
Criss Jami
The ones who constantly make us laugh are the hardest of friends to know - for comedians are the caricatures among us.

Humans elect leaders on the basis of the promises they make. We [vampires] try to elect ours based solely on the strength of their character.

Which do you want to be: a proficient manager or a Leader of Character? The first creates compliant employees. The second leads committed followers!
Dave Anderson
Leader of Character: someone who uses influence to achieve a moral or ethical goal.
David Brooks
I hope that in victory we are more grateful than proud.
David Brooks
Moderation is based on the idea that things do not fit neatly together. Politics is likely to be a competition between legitimate opposing interests. Philosophy is likely to be a tension between competing half truths. A personality is likely to be a battleground of valuable but incompatible traits.
David O. McKay
Happiness consists not of having, but of being; not of possessing, but of enjoying. It is a warm glow of the heart at peace with itself. A martyr at the stake may have happiness that a king on his throne might envy. Man is the creator of his own happiness. It is the aroma of life, lived in harmony with high ideals. For what a man has he may be dependent upon others; what he is rests with him alone.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
Never justify someones wrong action, without them apologizing first & admitting their wrongs. If you do. You are not making them better, but you are making them worse on the bad things they do.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
Your looks will introduce you, but your character and personality will make them to like you,love you and they would want to keep you.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
When people support you when you have done something wrong. It doesnt mean you are right, but it means those people are promoting their hate , bad behavior or living their bad lives through you.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
Children are no longer being parented, but are raised. Thats why they don't have morals, ethics,humanity and manners, because their parents neglected them. We now live in a society that doesnt care about right or wrong.

I dont celebrate any friendship that was build on hate, because we share the common enemy.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
If you have influence on other people. Dont be influenced by their hate, money, jealousy, anger and popularity .
Dean Koontz
Some people think only intellect counts: knowing how to solve problems, knowing how to get by, knowing how to identify an advantage and seize it. But the functions of intellect are insufficient without courage, love, friendship, compassion, and empathy.
Debasish Mridha
The ultimate success of a life depends on character and not on achievement.
Debasish Mridha
Success is more like a character than financial status
Debasish Mridha
Success in business is important. Success as a human being with values, character, kindness, and love is much more important.

Each character created by Stephen King is a proffesor... a guy full of knowledge.
Deyth Banger
Hey, GreenHollyWood the mistake was mine that I added you as a friend... I thought that you are my friend... but your irony doesn't end.
Deyth Banger
You as a soul you are alive, you as an actor - dead, as a character - dead... That's life, like it or not, it's not my problem!
Deyth Banger
Stephen King is not a guy who keeps secrets the same goes and for Jeffery Deaver. But Jeffery Deaver creates characters and plays with them, Stephen King knows with who is playing, Jeffery Deaver just goes as how will happen, I think that and he doesn't know where the story lines will go.
Deyth Banger
Reading is not like this... read and read without understanding you just want to finish the book... I had such moments but it's the worst decision ever made. The reading should be process in which you go deeper and deeper, you understand it... you like it... you try to be the same character.... you enjoy it and you want more and more... you have more and more curiousity.
Diane Setterfield
All morning I struggled with the sensation of stray wisps of one world seeping through the cracks of another. Do you know the feeling when you start reading a new book before the membrane of the last one has had time to close behind you? You leave the previous book with ideas and themes -- characters even -- caught in the fibers of your clothes, and when you open the new book, they are still with you.
Diane Von Furstenberg
Character. Intelligence. Strength. Style. That makes beauty.
Donald Maass
Beautiful writing is more than pretty prose. It creates resonance in readers' minds with parallels, reversals, and symbols. It conjures a story world that is unique, highly detailed, and brought alive by the characters that dwell there. It offers moments of breath-catching surprise, heart-gripping insight, revelation, and self-understanding. It engages the reader's mind with an urgent point, which we might call theme.
Donavan Nelson Butler, Master Sergeant US Army
You've evolved when you realize the effect that your positive contributions to others create ripples of humanity in the sea of life.
Dorothy Parker
In youth, it was a way I had,To do my best to please.And change, with every passing ladTo suit his theories.But now I know the things I knowAnd do the things I do,And if you do not like me so,To hell, my love, with you.
Dwight L. Moody
Character is what a man is in the dark
Dwight L. Moody
The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick alongside it
Edmund Burke
It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.
Elizabeth Gaskell
The traditions of . . . bygone times, even to the smallest social particular, enable one to understand more clearly the circumstances with contributed to the formation of character. The daily life into which people are born, and into which they are absorbed before they are well aware, forms chains which only one in a hundred has moral strength enough to despise, and to break when the right time comes - when an inward necessity for independent individual action arises, which is superior to all outward conventionalities. Therefore it is well to know what were the chains of daily domestic habit which were the natural leading-strings of our forefathers before they learnt to go alone.
Ellen J. Barrier
On the left side of a strong woman, stands a strong man; he is strengthened by her character.

Love for others is the foundation of leadership.Simplicity is the language of leadership.Authenticity is the true character of leadership.
Felix O. Hartmann
Power does not corrupt; it merely elevates the degree in which something is done that has already been pursued.
Fennel Hudson
Character and purpose are directly linked to confidence and conviction. What links them? Courage
Frances Hodgson Burnett
…Mrs. Warren allowed her book to fall closed upon her lap, and her attractive face awakened to an expression of agreeable expectation, in itself denoting the existence of interesting and desirable qualities in the husband at the moment inserting his latch-key in the front door preparatory to mounting the stairs and joining her. The man who, after twenty-five years of marriage, can call, by his return to her side, this expression to the countenance of an intelligent woman is, without question or argument, an individual whose life and occupations are as interesting as his character and points of view.
Frank Sonnenberg
Moral character is the DNA of success and happiness.

The Seven Social Sins are: Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character. Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice.

Garey Gordon
In essence, we are deeper than being; we are character, which contains the conscious forces of love, justice, kindness, faith, and forgiveness.
Gary J. Byrne
Character in leadership comes down to two questions: Would you trade places with anyone under your command? Do you hold yourself to the same level of accountability as those for whom you bear responsibility?

Live your life in such a way that you'll be remembered for your kindness, compassion, fairness, character, benevolence, and a force for good who had much respect for life, in general.
Grace Sara
The shaping of character mimics the smallest detail of habit; humans are creatures that learn from observation. Each little thing you do, and each thing you allow yourself to become desensitized to matters. They create you
Gregory Maguire
Indeed, she often wondered if she were dead, or dying from the inside out, and that was the root of her calm, the reason she could surrender her character.
Hannah Lillith Assadi
With the years, we become even more ourselves and call this change.
Hannah More
I call education, not that which smothers a woman with accomplishments, but that which tends to consolidate a firm and regular system of character; that which tends to form a friend, a companion, and a wife. I call education not that which is made up of the shreds and patches of useless arts, but that which inculcates principles, polishes taste, regulates temper, cultivates reason, subdues the passions, directs the feelings, habituates to reflection, trains to self-denial, and, more especially, that which refers all actions, feelings, sentiments, tastes, and passions, to the love and fear of God.
Harper Lee
Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
Harry Truman
Fame is a vapor, popularity is an accident, riches take wings, those who cheer today may curse tomorrow and only one thing endures - character.
Henri-Frédéric Amiel
It is not what he has, nor even what he does, which directly expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Henry Mosquera
There's no better way to get to know a city than to walk its streets. A place will reveal its soul through its sights, sounds and smells, and eventually, it'll teach you its rhythm.
Hilari Bell
In his opinion, working was vastly overrated. Particularly as a way to build character, for everyone who engaged in it was far too snappish and fussy, and seemed to have no manners at all.
Howard W. Hunter
At the end of your lives you will not be judged by academic successes, the degrees or diplomas earned, the positions held, the material wealth acquired, or power and prestige, but rather on the basis of what you have become as persons and what you are in conduct and character.
Hugo Hamilton
People say you're born innocent, but it's not true. You inherit all kinds of things that you can do nothing about. You inherit your identity, your history, like a birthmark that you can't wash off. ... We are born with our heads turned back, but my mother says we have to face into the future now. You have to earn your own innocence, she says. You have to grow up and become innocent.
Hyrum W. Smith
How we choose to deal with pain is ultimately the measure of who we are and of the success we have in closing our gaps.
Immanuel Kant
As nature has uncovered from under this hard shell the seed for which she most tenderly cares - the propensity and vocation to free thinking - this gradually works back upon the character of the people, who thereby gradually become capable of managing freedom; finally, it affects the principles of government, which finds it to its advantage to treat men, who are now more than machines, in accordance with their dignity.
Israelmore Ayivor
The public personality of a leader is not what really matters. What he does out of the open stage really tells more about him than anything else.
Israelmore Ayivor
Most of the world's problems are caused by people who made education compulsory, but personal development optional. Because of them, we have many intelligent people who lack good characters.
Israelmore Ayivor
A leader's skills take him to people, but his character brings people to him.
Israelmore Ayivor
You can lead if you can serve. You can serve when you can love. You can love when you are graced. The truth is that God knows love will be needed in volumes, this is why he made his grace abundant. Leaders are lovers. Misleaders are haters!
Israelmore Ayivor
When you are a person people can trust, they will call on upon you, love to be around you and work with you.
Israelmore Ayivor
You can be in your room and lead people. Just develop your potentials and publicize them and you will see people looking for your product. That is influence; self-made leaders do not look for followers. Followers look for them.
Israelmore Ayivor
You can be humble without compromising your values.
Israelmore Ayivor
The most essential requirement for leaders is neither age nor gender. It is neither certificates nor positions. It is the character that reveals trust and exemplary life.
Israelmore Ayivor
Ballot papers don't determine who leads; they determine who takes which position. As to whether that person occupying the position will lead or will manipulate, character must come to prove it.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders decorate the world; character is their paint. They live exemplary life and make the world better than they found it.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders show examples. They have something to offer and they'll offer it by the process of how they got it. Anyone who has no examples to show may not lead better.
Israelmore Ayivor
Achievements take leaders' name everywhere. Character keeps those names wherever they reach. A leader with no trust soon fades no matter how far he goes.
Israelmore Ayivor
When the leader goes wayward, the organization goes wayward.
Israelmore Ayivor
The ladder of leadership can only stand firm on the grounds of integrity. Any other ground makes it unstable till it falls.
Israelmore Ayivor
The real character of leaders does not show in fair weathers. When the sun of life begins to go hot, you will see for yourself some leaders are already melting off!
Israelmore Ayivor
Self-leaders are still true leaders even if they have no known followers. True leaders inspire by the influence of their characters and general self-made brands. Leadership is defined by the virtues of one's behaviour.
Israelmore Ayivor
Who you are when you have no power to say anything, and who you become when you have power to say everything will determine whether you are a leader or not.
Israelmore Ayivor
And don't forget, if you are very intelligent but load yourself with bad characters, nobody will follow you.
Israelmore Ayivor
A leader's attitude tells how often he will be the winner; his character determines how long he will be the winner.
Israelmore Ayivor
When you are a person people can trust, they will call on upon you, love to be around you and work with you. A leader's skills take him to people, but his character brings people to him.
Israelmore Ayivor
The time it takes to fall from the top of a mountain to the floor it shorter than what it takes to climb from the floor to the top. Only leaders with character can maintain their trusts.
Israelmore Ayivor
Self-leaders do not look for followers because they are busily pursuing their influencial dreams that followers will trace and ask for. Followers look for influence and that can be obtained from self-leaders.
J.C. Watts Jr.
Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by,and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.
James Emlund
The specialty in all life is expecting the exception, while ignorant of real acceptance, until unexpectedly you re-witness your own ignorance to 'be' the cause that awakens others. One does not do this yesterday, or today. You do this with expressing honesty everyday.
James Fenimore Cooper
All greatness of character is dependent on individuality. The man who has no other existence than that which he partakes in common with all around him, will never have any other than any existence of mediocrity.
Jane Austen
It has sunk him, I cannot say how much it has sunk him in my opinion. So unlike what a man should be!-None of that upright integrity, that strict adherence to truth and principle, that distain of trick and littleness, which a man should display in every transaction of his life.
Jane Austen
Her [Mrs Croft's] manners were open, easy, and decided, like one who had no distrust of herself, and no doubts of what to do; without any approach to coarseness, however, or any want of good humour. Anne gave her credit, indeed, for feelings of great consideration towards herself, in all that related to Kellynch; and it pleased her.
Jane Austen
There is, I believe, in every disposition a tendency to some particular evil, a natural defect, which not even the best education can overcome.And your defect is a propensity to hate everybody.And yours, he replied with a smile, is wilfully to misunderstand them.
Jane Austen
There certainly was some great mismanagement in the education of those two young men. One has got all the goodness, and the other all the appearance of it.
Janet Goodfriend
Because you live to love and love to live/ And because of what your heardrum will give/ Now we might love to live and live to love.

Don't apologize for expressing passion.Don't back down when it comes to your integrity.Don't let anyone undermine your standards for the sake of ease.Be a character of excellence, NOT excuses.

It's not about grades, or saaviness, or sex appeal. It's all about grit. The strength of your character is the strength of your character determines your success more than anything else.

Joan Didion
Character
Jodi Picoult
There is a curious thing that happens with the passage of time: a calcification of character... Change isn't always for the worst; the shell that forms around a piece of sand looks to some people like an irritation, and to others, like a pearl.
John Burroughs
One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: 'To rise above little things'.
John C. Maxwell
Talent is a gift, but character is a choice.
John Stuart Mill
A person whose desires and impulses are his own
John Wooden
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
John Wooden
Reputation is what others perceive you as being, and their opinion may be right or wrong. Character, however, is what you really are, and nobody knows that but you.
Julie Garwood
A woman can't do anything about her appearance. Either she's pretty or she isn't. But her character is quite another matter.
Julie Garwood
A compliment about one's nature is more important because a person has to choose how to behave, whilst a compliment about one's appearance doesn't mean overly much because there is no choice involved there.
Justin Cronin
Real courage is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. Doing the unpopular thing because it's what you believe, and the heck with everybody.

None of us commences life utterly alone. We each carry within our granular mass the protoplasm residue of past generations' ideas, customs, values, infatuations, prejudices, ethics, and mores. The lees wrought from our seedlings contribute to the social order that oversees a newborn's future.
