Character

The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
- Angelou, Maya
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

2.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

3.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

4.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

5.
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.

6.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

7.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

8.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

9.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
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

14.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

15.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

16.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

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.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

19.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

20.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

24.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

25.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

26.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

27.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

28.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

29.
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

30.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

31.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

32.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

33.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

34.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

35.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

36.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

37.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

38.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

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.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

41.
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.

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
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

49.
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

50.
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.
