Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
- Euripides
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

2.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

3.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

4.
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

5.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

6.
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.
Strindberg, J. August

7.
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

8.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

9.
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

10.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

11.
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

12.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

13.
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

14.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

15.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

16.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

17.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

18.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

19.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

20.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

21.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

22.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

23.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

24.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

25.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

26.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

27.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

28.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

29.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

30.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

31.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

32.
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.

33.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

34.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
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

36.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

37.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

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

41.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

43.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

44.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

48.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

49.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

50.
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
