Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
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

3.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

4.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

5.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

6.
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

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.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

9.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

10.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

11.
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

12.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

13.
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.

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

16.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

17.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

18.
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.

19.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

20.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

21.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

22.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

23.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

24.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

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

A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

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

Marie Leneru

The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

31.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

32.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

33.
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

34.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

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

37.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

38.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

39.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

40.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

41.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

42.
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

43.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

44.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

45.
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

46.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

47.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

48.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

49.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
