Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

2.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

3.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

4.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

5.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

6.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

7.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

8.
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

9.
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

10.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

11.
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

12.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

13.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

14.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

15.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

16.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

17.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

18.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

19.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

20.
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

21.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

22.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

23.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

24.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

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

26.
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

27.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

28.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

29.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

30.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

31.
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.

32.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

33.
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.

34.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

35.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

36.
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

37.
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

George Santayana

40.
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.

41.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

42.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

43.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

47.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

48.
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

49.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

50.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
