Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

2.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

3.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

4.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

5.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

6.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

7.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

8.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

9.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

10.
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.

11.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

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

13.
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

14.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

15.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

16.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

17.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

21.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

22.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

23.
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

24.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

25.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

26.
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

27.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

28.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
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.

30.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

31.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

32.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

33.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

35.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

36.
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.

37.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

38.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

39.
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

40.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

41.
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

42.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

43.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

44.
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

45.
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.

46.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

47.
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

48.
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

49.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

50.
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.
