Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

2.
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.

3.
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

4.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

5.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

6.
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

7.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

8.
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

9.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

13.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

14.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

15.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

16.
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.

17.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

18.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

19.
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

20.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

21.
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.

22.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

23.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

24.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

25.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

26.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

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

28.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

29.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

30.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

31.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

32.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

33.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

34.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

35.
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

36.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

37.
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.

38.
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

39.
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.

40.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

41.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

42.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

43.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

44.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

48.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

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

50.
