Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

2.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

3.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

4.
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

5.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

6.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

7.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

8.
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

9.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

10.
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

11.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

12.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

14.
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

15.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

16.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

17.
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

18.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

19.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

20.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

21.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

22.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

23.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

24.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

25.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

27.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

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

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

32.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

33.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

35.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

36.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

37.
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

38.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

39.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

40.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

41.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

42.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

43.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

44.
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

45.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

46.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

47.
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.

48.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

49.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

50.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman
