Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

2.
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

3.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

4.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

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

6.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

7.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

8.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

9.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

10.
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

11.
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.

12.
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.

13.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

15.
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

16.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

17.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

18.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

19.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

20.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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

22.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

27.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

28.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

30.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

31.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

32.
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

33.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

34.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

35.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

36.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

37.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

38.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

39.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

40.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

41.
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.

42.
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

43.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

44.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.

I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

48.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

49.
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

50.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.
