Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

2.
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

3.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

4.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

5.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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.

9.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

10.
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.

11.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

12.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

13.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

14.
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

15.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

16.
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.

17.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

18.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

20.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

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

23.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

24.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

25.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

26.
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.

27.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

28.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

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.
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

31.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

32.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

33.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

34.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

35.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

36.
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

37.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

38.
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

39.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

40.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

41.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

42.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

43.
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.

44.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

48.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

49.
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

50.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander
