Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

2.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

3.
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.

4.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

5.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

6.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

7.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

8.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

9.
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

10.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

11.
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

12.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

13.
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

14.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

15.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

16.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

17.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

18.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

19.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

20.
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

21.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

22.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

23.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

24.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

25.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

26.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

27.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

28.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

29.
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

30.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

31.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

32.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

34.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

35.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

36.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

37.
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

38.
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

39.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

40.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

41.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

42.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

43.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

44.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

45.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

46.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

47.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

48.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

49.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

50.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.
