Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

2.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

6.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

7.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

8.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

9.
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.

10.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

11.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

12.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

13.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

14.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

15.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

16.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

17.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

18.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

19.
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

20.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

21.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

22.
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

23.
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.

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

27.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

28.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

29.
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

30.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

31.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

32.
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

33.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

34.
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

35.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

36.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

37.
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

38.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

39.
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.

40.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

41.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

42.
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

43.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

44.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

45.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

46.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

47.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

48.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

49.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

50.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham
