Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

3.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

4.
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

5.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

6.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

7.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

8.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

9.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

10.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

14.
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

15.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

16.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

17.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

18.
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

19.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

20.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

21.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

22.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

23.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

24.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

25.
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

26.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

27.
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

28.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

30.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

31.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

32.
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

33.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

34.
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.

35.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

36.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

37.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

38.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

39.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

40.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

41.
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

42.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

43.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

44.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

45.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

46.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

47.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

48.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

49.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

50.
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
