Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

2.
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

3.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

4.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

8.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

9.
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

10.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

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

13.
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

14.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

15.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

16.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

17.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

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

22.
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

23.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

24.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

25.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

26.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
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.

31.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

32.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

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

34.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

35.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

36.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

37.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

38.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

39.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

41.
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

42.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.

Gill, Vince

50.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
