Character

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

Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

2.
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.

3.
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

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.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

7.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

8.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

10.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

11.
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

12.
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

13.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

14.
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

15.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

16.
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

17.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

18.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

19.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

20.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

21.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

22.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

23.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

24.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

25.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

29.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

30.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

36.
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

37.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

38.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

39.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

40.
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.

41.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

42.
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

43.
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.
