Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

2.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

3.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

8.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

9.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

10.
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

11.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

12.
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

13.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

14.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

15.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

16.
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

17.
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.

18.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

19.
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

20.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

21.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

22.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

23.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

24.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

25.
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

26.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

27.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

28.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

29.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

30.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

31.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

32.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

33.
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.

34.
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

35.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

36.
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

37.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

38.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

39.
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

40.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

41.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

43.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

44.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

45.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

46.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

47.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

48.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

49.
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

50.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson
