Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

3.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

4.
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.

5.
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

6.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

10.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

11.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

12.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

13.
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

14.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

15.
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.

16.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

17.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

18.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

Baldwin, Faith

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

Covey, Stephen R.

22.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

23.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

24.
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

25.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

26.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

27.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

28.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

29.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

30.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

31.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

32.
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

33.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

34.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

35.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

36.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

W. Somerset Maugham

41.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

42.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.
