Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

2.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

4.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

5.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

6.
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

7.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

8.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

9.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

10.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

11.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

12.
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

13.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

14.
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

15.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

16.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

17.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

18.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

19.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

20.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

21.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

22.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

23.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

24.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

26.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

27.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

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.
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

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

31.
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.

32.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

33.
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.

34.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
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

36.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

37.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

38.
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

39.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

40.
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

41.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

42.
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.

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

46.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry
