Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

2.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

6.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

8.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

9.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

10.
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.

11.
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

12.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

13.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

14.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

15.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

16.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

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

18.
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

19.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

20.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

21.
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

22.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

23.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

24.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

29.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

30.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

31.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

32.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
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.

34.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

35.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

39.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

40.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

41.
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.

42.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

43.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

44.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

45.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

46.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

48.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

49.
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.

50.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
