Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

2.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

3.
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

4.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

5.
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

6.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

7.
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

8.
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

9.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

10.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

11.
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

12.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

13.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

14.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

15.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

16.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

17.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

18.
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

19.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

20.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

21.
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.

22.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

23.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

25.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

26.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

27.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

29.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

30.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

31.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

32.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

33.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

34.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

35.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

36.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

37.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

38.
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.

39.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

40.
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

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

42.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

43.
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

44.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

45.
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

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.
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

48.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

49.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

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
