Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

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

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.

8.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

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

10.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

12.
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.

13.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

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

15.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

16.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

17.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

18.
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

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

Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

22.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

23.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

24.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

25.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

26.
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

27.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

28.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

29.
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

30.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

31.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

32.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

33.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

34.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

35.
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

36.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

37.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

38.
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

39.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

40.
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

41.
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

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