Character

Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
- Cicero
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

3.
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

4.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

5.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

6.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

10.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

11.
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

12.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

13.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

14.
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.

15.
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

16.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

17.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

18.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

19.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

20.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

21.
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

22.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

23.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

24.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

25.
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

26.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

27.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

28.
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

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

32.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

33.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

34.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

35.
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

36.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

37.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

38.
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.

39.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

41.
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

42.
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

43.
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

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.
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

46.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

47.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

48.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

49.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

50.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew
