Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

2.
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

3.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

4.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

5.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

6.
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.

7.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

8.
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.

9.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

10.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

11.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

12.
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

13.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

14.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

15.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

16.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

17.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

18.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

19.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

20.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

21.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

22.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

23.
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

24.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

25.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

26.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

27.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

28.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

29.
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

30.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

31.
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

32.
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

33.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

34.
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

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

37.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

38.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

39.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

40.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

41.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

42.
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

43.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

44.
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

45.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

46.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

47.
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

48.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

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.

50.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb
