Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

2.
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

3.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

4.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

5.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

6.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

7.
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

8.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

9.
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

10.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

11.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

12.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

13.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

14.
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

15.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

16.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

17.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

18.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

19.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

20.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

21.
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

22.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

23.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
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.

25.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

26.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

27.
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

28.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

29.
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

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

31.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

32.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

33.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

34.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

35.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

36.
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

37.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

38.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

39.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

42.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

43.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

44.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

45.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

46.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

47.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

48.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

49.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

50.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
