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

3.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

4.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

5.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

6.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

7.
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

8.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

9.
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

10.
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

11.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

12.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

13.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

14.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

15.
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

16.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

17.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

18.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

19.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

24.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

25.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

26.
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.

27.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

28.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

29.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

30.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

31.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

32.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

33.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

34.
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.

35.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

36.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

37.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

38.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

39.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

40.
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.

41.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

42.
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.

43.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

44.
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

45.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

46.
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

47.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

48.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

49.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.

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