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

Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

2.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

3.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

4.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

5.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

6.
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.

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

8.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

9.
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

10.
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

11.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

12.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

14.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

15.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

16.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

17.
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

18.
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

19.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

20.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

21.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

22.
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

23.
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.

24.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

25.
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.

26.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

27.
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.

28.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

30.
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

31.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

32.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

33.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

34.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

35.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

36.
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

37.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

38.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

39.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

40.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.

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

43.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

44.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

45.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

46.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

47.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

48.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

49.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

50.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John
