Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

2.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

3.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

4.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

5.
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

6.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

7.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

8.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

9.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

14.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

15.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

16.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

17.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

18.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

19.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

20.
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

21.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

22.
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

23.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

24.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

25.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

26.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

27.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

28.
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

29.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

30.
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

31.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

32.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

33.
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.

34.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

35.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

36.
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

37.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

38.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

39.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

40.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

41.
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

42.

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

Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush
