Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

5.
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

6.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

7.
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

8.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

9.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

10.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

11.
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

12.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

13.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

14.
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

15.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

16.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

17.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

18.
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.

19.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

20.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

21.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

22.
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.

23.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

24.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

26.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

28.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

30.
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

31.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

32.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

33.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

34.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

35.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

36.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

37.
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

38.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

39.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

40.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

41.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

42.
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

43.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

44.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

45.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

46.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

47.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

48.
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

49.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

50.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya
