Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

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.

2.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

3.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

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

6.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

7.
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

8.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

9.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

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

11.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

12.
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

13.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

14.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

15.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

16.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

17.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

19.
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

20.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

21.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

22.
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.

23.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

24.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

25.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

26.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

27.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

28.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

29.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

30.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

31.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

32.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

45.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

Chambers, Oswald

49.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon
