Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

3.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

4.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

5.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

6.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

7.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

8.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

9.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

10.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

11.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

12.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

13.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

14.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

15.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

16.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

17.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

18.
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

19.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

20.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

21.
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

22.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

23.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

24.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

25.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

26.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

27.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

28.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

29.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

30.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

31.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

32.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

33.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

34.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

35.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

36.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

37.
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.

38.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

39.
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

40.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

41.
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

42.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

46.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

47.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

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