Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

2.
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.

3.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

4.
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

5.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

6.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

7.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

8.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

9.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

10.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

11.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

12.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

13.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

14.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

15.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

16.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

17.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

18.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

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.
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

21.
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.

22.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

24.
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

25.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

26.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

27.
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

28.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

29.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

30.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

31.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

32.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

33.
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

34.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

35.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

36.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

37.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

38.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

39.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

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.
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

42.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

43.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

44.
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

45.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

46.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

47.
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.

48.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

49.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

50.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William
