Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

2.
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

3.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

4.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

5.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

6.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

7.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

8.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

9.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

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.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

12.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

16.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

17.
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

18.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

19.
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.

20.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

21.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

22.
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.

23.
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

24.
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

25.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

26.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

31.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

32.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

38.
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

39.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

40.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

41.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

42.
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

43.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

44.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

45.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

46.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

48.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

49.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

50.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
