Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

2.
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

3.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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

5.
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.

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

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

My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

11.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

13.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

14.
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.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

18.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

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

21.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

23.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

24.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

25.
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

26.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

27.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

28.
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

29.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

30.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

Howell, Harry

42.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

43.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

44.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

45.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

46.
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

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

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