Character

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



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

6.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

8.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

9.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

10.
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

11.
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.

12.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

13.
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

14.
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

15.
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.

16.
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.

17.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

21.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

22.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

26.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

27.
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.

28.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

29.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

30.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

31.
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

32.
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.

33.
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.

34.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

35.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

36.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

37.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

38.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

39.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

40.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

41.
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

42.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

43.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

44.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

45.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

46.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

47.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

48.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

49.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

50.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith
