Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

2.
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

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

6.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

7.
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

8.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

9.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

10.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

11.
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

12.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

13.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

14.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

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

16.
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.

17.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

18.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

19.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

20.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

21.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

22.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

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

24.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

25.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

26.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

27.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

28.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

29.
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

30.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

31.
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

32.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

33.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

34.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

35.
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

36.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

37.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

38.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

40.
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

41.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

42.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

43.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

44.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

45.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

46.
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

47.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

48.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

49.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

50.
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
