Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
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.

4.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

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.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

7.
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

8.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

9.
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

10.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

11.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

12.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

13.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

14.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

15.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

16.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

17.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

18.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

19.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

20.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

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

23.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

24.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

25.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

26.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

28.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

29.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

30.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

31.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

32.
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

33.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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.

37.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

38.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

39.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

40.
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

41.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

42.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

43.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

44.
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

45.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

46.
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

47.
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

48.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

49.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

50.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
