Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

2.
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.

3.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

4.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

5.
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

6.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

7.
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

8.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

9.
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

10.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

14.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

15.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

16.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

17.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

18.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

19.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

20.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

21.
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

22.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

23.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

24.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

25.
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

26.
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

27.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

28.
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

29.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

30.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

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

32.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

33.
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

34.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
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.

36.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

37.
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

38.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

39.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

40.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

41.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

42.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

43.
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

44.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

45.
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

46.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

47.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

48.
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

49.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

50.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly
