Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
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

4.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

5.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

6.
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

7.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

8.
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

9.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

10.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

11.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

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

14.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

15.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

16.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

17.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

18.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

19.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

20.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

21.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

22.
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

23.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

24.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

25.
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.

26.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

27.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

28.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

29.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

30.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

31.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

32.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

33.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

34.
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

35.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

36.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

37.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

38.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

39.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

40.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

41.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

42.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

43.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

45.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

46.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

47.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

48.
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

49.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

50.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio
