Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

4.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

5.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

6.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

7.
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

8.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

9.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
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.

11.
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.

12.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

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

14.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

O'Shea

16.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

17.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

18.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

19.
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.

20.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

21.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

25.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

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

27.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

28.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

29.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

30.
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

31.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

35.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

36.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

37.
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

38.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

39.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

40.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

42.

Lois McMaster Bujold
