Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

3.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
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

5.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

6.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

7.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

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.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

11.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

12.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

13.
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

14.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

15.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

16.
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.

17.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

19.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

20.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

21.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

22.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

23.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

24.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

25.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

26.
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.

27.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

28.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

29.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

30.
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

31.
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.

32.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

33.
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

34.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

35.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

36.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

37.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

38.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

39.

Virgil

40.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

41.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

42.

Jefferson, Thomas

48.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

49.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

50.
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.
