Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

4.
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

5.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

6.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

7.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

8.
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.

9.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

10.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

11.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

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

13.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

14.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

15.
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.

16.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

20.
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

21.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

22.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

23.
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

24.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

25.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

26.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

27.
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.

28.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

30.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

31.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

32.
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

33.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

34.
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

35.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

36.
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

37.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

38.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

39.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

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.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

45.
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

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

47.
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.

48.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

49.
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

50.
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
