Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

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

3.
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.

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

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

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

Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

8.
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

9.
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

Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

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

Fitzwater, P. B.

Hume, David

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

16.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

17.
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

18.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

19.
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.

20.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

21.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

22.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

23.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

24.
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

25.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

26.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

27.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

28.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

29.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

30.
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

31.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

46.
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.

47.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.

James, William
