Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

2.
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

3.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

4.
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.

5.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

6.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

7.
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

8.
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.

9.
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

10.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

11.
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

12.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

13.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

14.
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.

15.
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

16.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

17.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

19.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

20.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

21.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

22.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

23.
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

24.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

25.
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

26.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

27.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

31.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

32.
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

33.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

34.
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

35.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

36.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

40.
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

41.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

42.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

43.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

44.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

45.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

46.
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

47.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

48.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

49.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

50.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant
