Motivational Quotes

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.
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

2.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

3.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

4.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

5.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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.

9.
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

10.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

11.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

12.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

13.
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

14.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

15.
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

16.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

17.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

18.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

19.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

20.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

21.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

22.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

23.
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

24.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

25.
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

26.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

27.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

31.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

32.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

33.
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.

34.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

35.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

36.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

37.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

38.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

39.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

40.
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

41.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

42.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

43.
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

44.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

45.
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

46.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

47.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

48.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

49.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

50.
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
