Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

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

5.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

6.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

7.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

8.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

9.
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

10.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

11.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

13.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

14.
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.

15.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

16.
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

17.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

18.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

Miller, Arthur

24.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

25.
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

26.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

27.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

28.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

29.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

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