Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

2.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

3.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

4.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

5.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

6.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

7.
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

8.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

9.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

10.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

11.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

12.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

13.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

14.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

15.
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

16.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

17.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

18.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

19.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

20.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

21.
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

22.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

23.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

24.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

25.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

26.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

27.
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

28.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

29.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

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

32.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

33.
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.

34.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

35.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

36.
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

37.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

38.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

39.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

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.
