Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

2.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

3.
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

4.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

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

6.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

7.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

8.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

9.
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

10.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

11.
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

12.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

13.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

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

15.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

16.
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

17.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

18.
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.

19.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

20.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

21.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

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

24.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

25.
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

26.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

27.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

28.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

29.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

30.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

31.
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

32.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

33.
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

34.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

38.
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

39.
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.

40.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

41.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

42.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

43.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

44.
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

45.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

46.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

47.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

48.
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

49.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius
