Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

3.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

4.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

5.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

6.
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.

7.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

8.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

9.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

10.
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

11.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

12.
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

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.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

15.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

16.
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

17.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

19.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

20.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

21.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

22.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

23.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

24.
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

25.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

26.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
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

28.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

29.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

30.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

31.
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

32.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

33.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

34.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

35.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

36.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

37.
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

38.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

39.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

40.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

41.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

42.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

43.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
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

45.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

46.
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

47.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

48.
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.

49.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

50.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince
