Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

2.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
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

4.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

5.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

6.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

7.
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.

8.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

9.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

10.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

11.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

12.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

13.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

14.
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

15.
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

16.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

17.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

18.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

19.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

20.
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

21.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

22.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

23.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

24.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

25.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

26.
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

27.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

28.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

29.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

30.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

31.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

32.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

33.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

34.
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.

35.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

36.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

37.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

38.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

39.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

40.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

41.
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

42.
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

43.
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

44.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

45.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

46.
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.

47.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

48.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

49.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

50.
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
