Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

2.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

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

4.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

6.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.

Petrarch, Francesco

9.
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.

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

Aristotle

13.

Abbott, Lyman

14.
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.

15.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

16.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

17.
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

18.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

19.
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

20.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

21.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

22.
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.

23.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

24.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

Proverb

27.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

31.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

32.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

33.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

34.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

35.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

36.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

37.

Akhenaton

38.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

39.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

40.
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

41.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

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

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