- Thackeray, William M.
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

5.
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

6.
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.

7.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

8.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

9.
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

10.
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.

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

12.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

13.
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

14.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

15.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

17.
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

18.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

19.
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.

20.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

21.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

22.
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

23.
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

24.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

25.
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.

26.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

27.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
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

29.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

30.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

31.
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

32.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

34.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

35.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

36.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

37.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

38.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

39.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

40.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

41.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

42.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

43.
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

44.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

45.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

46.
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

47.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

48.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

49.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

50.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard
