Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

3.
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

4.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

5.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

6.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

7.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

8.
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.

9.
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.

10.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

11.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

12.
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

13.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

14.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

15.
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

16.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

17.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

18.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

20.
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

21.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

22.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

23.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

24.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

25.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

26.
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.

27.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

28.
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.

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

33.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

34.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

35.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

36.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

37.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

38.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

39.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

40.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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
