Character

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



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

2.
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

3.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

4.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

5.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

6.
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

7.
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.

8.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

9.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

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

14.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

15.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

16.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

17.
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

18.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
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

20.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

21.
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

22.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

23.
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

24.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

25.
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

26.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

27.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
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.

31.
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

32.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

33.
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

34.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
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.

36.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

37.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

38.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

39.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

40.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

41.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

42.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

43.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

44.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

45.
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.

46.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

47.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

48.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

49.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

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
