Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

2.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

6.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

7.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

8.
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

9.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

11.
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

12.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

13.
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

14.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

15.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

16.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

17.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

18.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

20.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

21.
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.

22.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

23.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

24.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

25.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

26.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

27.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

29.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

30.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

31.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

32.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

33.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

34.
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

35.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

36.
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

37.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

38.
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.

39.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

40.
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

41.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

42.
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

43.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

44.
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

45.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

46.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

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

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.

49.
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.

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