Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
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

4.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

5.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

6.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

7.
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.

8.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

9.
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

10.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

11.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

12.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

13.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

14.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

15.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

16.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

17.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

18.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

19.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

20.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

21.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

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.
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

24.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

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

26.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

27.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

28.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

29.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

30.
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

31.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

32.
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

33.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

39.
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.

40.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

41.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

42.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

43.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

47.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

48.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

49.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

50.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
