Motivational Quotes

Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

3.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

4.
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

5.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

6.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

11.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

12.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

13.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

18.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

19.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

20.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

21.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

22.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

23.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

24.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

25.
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.

26.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

27.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

28.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

29.
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

30.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

31.
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.

32.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

33.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

34.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

35.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

36.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

37.
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

38.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

39.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

40.
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

41.
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

42.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

43.
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.

44.
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.

45.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

46.
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

47.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

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

50.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine
