Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

2.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

3.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

4.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

5.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

6.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

7.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

8.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

9.
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

10.
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

11.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

12.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

13.
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

14.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

15.
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

16.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

17.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

18.
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

19.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

24.
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

25.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

26.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

27.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

28.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

29.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

30.
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

31.
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

32.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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.

36.
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

37.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

38.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

40.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

41.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

42.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

43.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

44.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

45.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

46.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

47.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

48.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

49.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

50.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince
