Motivational Quotes

Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

2.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

3.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

4.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

5.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

6.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

Confucius

Gill, Vince

10.
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.

11.
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.

12.
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

13.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

14.

Virgil

16.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

17.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

18.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

19.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

20.
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

21.
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

22.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

23.
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

24.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

25.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

26.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

27.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

28.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

29.
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

30.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

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

32.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

33.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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.

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

Amiel, Henri Frederic

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.

49.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

50.
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
