Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
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.

6.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

7.
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.

8.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

9.
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

10.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

11.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

12.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

13.
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

14.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

15.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

16.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

21.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

22.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

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

24.
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

25.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
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.

27.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

28.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

29.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

30.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

31.
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

32.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

33.
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

34.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

35.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

36.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

37.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

38.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

40.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

41.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

42.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

43.
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

44.
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

45.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

46.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

47.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

48.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

49.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

50.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
