Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

2.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

3.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

4.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

5.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

6.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

7.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

8.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

9.
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

10.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

11.
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.

12.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

14.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

15.
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

16.
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

17.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

18.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

19.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

20.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

21.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

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

23.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

24.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

25.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

26.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

27.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

28.
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

29.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
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

31.
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.

32.
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.

33.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.

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

38.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

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

45.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

46.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

47.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
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

49.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

50.
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.
