Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

3.
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

4.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

5.
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

6.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

7.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

8.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

9.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

10.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

11.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

12.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

13.
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

14.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

15.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

16.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

17.
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

18.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

19.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

20.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

21.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

22.
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

23.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

24.
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.

25.
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

26.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

27.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

28.
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

29.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

30.
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

31.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

32.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

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.
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

35.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

36.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

37.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

38.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

42.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

43.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.

Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

49.
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

50.
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
