Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

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

4.
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

5.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

6.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

7.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

8.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

9.
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

10.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

11.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

12.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

13.
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

14.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

15.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

16.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

17.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

18.
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

19.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

23.
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

24.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

25.
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.

26.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

27.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

28.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

29.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

33.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

34.
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

35.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

36.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

38.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

39.
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

40.
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

41.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

42.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

43.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

44.
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

45.
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.

46.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

47.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

48.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

49.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

50.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham
