Character

I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
- Forster, Edward M.
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

3.
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

4.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

5.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

6.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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.

10.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

11.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

12.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

13.
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.

14.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

15.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

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.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

18.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

19.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

20.
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.

21.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

22.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

23.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

24.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

25.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

26.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

27.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

28.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

29.
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

30.
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

31.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

32.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

33.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

34.
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

35.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

36.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

37.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

38.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

41.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

42.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

43.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

44.
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

45.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

46.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

47.
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

48.
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

49.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

50.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James
