Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

2.
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.

3.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

4.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

5.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

6.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

7.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

8.
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.

9.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

10.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

11.
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.

12.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

14.
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.

15.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

16.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

17.
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

18.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

19.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

20.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

21.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

22.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

23.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

24.
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

25.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

26.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

27.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

28.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

29.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

30.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

31.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

32.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

34.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

36.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

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.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

Brown, Les

44.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

45.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

46.
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.
