Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

3.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

4.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

5.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

6.
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.

7.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

8.
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

9.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

10.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

11.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

12.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

14.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

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

17.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

18.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

24.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

25.
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.

26.
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

27.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

28.
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

29.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

30.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

35.
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

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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

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.
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

43.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

44.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

45.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

46.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

47.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
