Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

2.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

8.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

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

11.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

12.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

13.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

14.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

15.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

16.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

18.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

19.
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

20.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

24.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

25.
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

26.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

27.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

28.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

29.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

30.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

31.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

32.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

33.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

34.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

35.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

36.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

37.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

38.
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.

39.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

40.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

41.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

42.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

43.
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

44.
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

45.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

49.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

50.
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
