Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.

Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

2.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

3.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

4.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

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.

6.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

7.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

8.
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

9.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

11.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

12.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

13.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

14.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

15.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

16.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

17.
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

18.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

19.
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

20.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

21.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

22.
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.

23.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

24.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

25.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

26.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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

30.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

31.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

32.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

33.
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

34.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

35.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

36.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

37.
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

38.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

39.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
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

41.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

42.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

43.
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.

44.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

45.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

46.
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

47.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

48.
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.

49.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

50.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon
