Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

2.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

3.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

8.
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

9.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

10.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

11.
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.

12.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

13.
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

14.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

15.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

16.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

18.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

19.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

20.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

21.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

22.
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

23.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

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

25.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

26.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

27.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

28.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

29.
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

30.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

31.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

32.
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.

33.
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.

34.
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

While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

41.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

42.
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

43.
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.

If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed
