Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

2.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

3.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

4.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

5.
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

6.
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.

7.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

8.
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

9.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

10.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

14.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

15.
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

16.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

17.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

19.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

20.
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

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

22.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

23.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
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

25.
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.

26.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

27.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

28.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

32.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

33.
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

34.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

35.
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.

36.
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

37.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

38.
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

39.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

40.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

41.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

42.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

43.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

44.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

45.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

46.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

47.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

49.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

50.
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
