Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

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.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

4.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

5.
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

6.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

7.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

8.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

9.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

11.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

12.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

13.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

14.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

15.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

16.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

17.
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.

18.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

19.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

20.
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

21.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

22.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

23.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

24.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

25.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

26.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

27.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

28.
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.

29.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

30.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

31.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

32.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

33.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

34.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

35.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

36.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

37.
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.

38.
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

39.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

40.
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

41.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

42.
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

43.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

44.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

45.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

46.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

47.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

48.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

49.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

50.
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
