Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

3.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

4.
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

5.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

6.
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.

7.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

12.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

13.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

14.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

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

16.
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.

17.
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

18.
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

19.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

20.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

21.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

22.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

23.
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

24.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

25.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

26.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

27.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

28.
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

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.
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.

31.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

32.
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

33.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

34.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

35.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

36.
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.

37.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

38.
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

39.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

40.
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

41.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

42.
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

43.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence
