Motivational Quotes

Character

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.

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

2.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

3.
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

4.
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

5.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

6.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

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.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

9.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

10.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

11.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

12.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

13.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

14.
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

15.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
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

20.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

21.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

22.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

23.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

24.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

25.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

26.
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

27.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

28.
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

29.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

30.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

31.
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

32.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

33.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

34.
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

35.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

36.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

37.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

38.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

39.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

40.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

41.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

42.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

43.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

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

Gardner, Ava

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

48.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

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
