Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

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

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

5.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

8.
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

9.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

10.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

11.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

12.
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

13.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

14.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

15.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

16.
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

17.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

18.
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.

19.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

20.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

21.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

22.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

23.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

24.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

25.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

26.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

27.
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

Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

29.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

30.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

31.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

Hepburn, Katharine

33.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

34.
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

35.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

36.
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

37.
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.

38.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

39.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.

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

41.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

42.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

43.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

44.
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

45.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

46.

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

47.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

48.
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.

49.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

50.
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
