Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

6.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

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

16.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

17.
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

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

19.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

20.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

23.
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

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

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.

29.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

30.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

31.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

32.

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

43.

Joan Didion
