Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

2.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

3.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

4.
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

5.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

6.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

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

8.
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.

9.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

10.
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

11.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

12.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

14.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

15.
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

16.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

17.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

18.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

19.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

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

21.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

22.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

23.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

24.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

25.
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

26.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

27.
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.

28.
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

29.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

30.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

31.
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

32.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

33.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

34.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

35.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

36.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

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

38.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

40.
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.

41.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

42.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed
