Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

2.
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

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

4.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

5.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

6.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

7.
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

8.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

9.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

10.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

11.
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

12.
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.

13.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

14.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

15.
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

16.
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

17.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

18.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

19.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

20.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

21.
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

22.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

23.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

24.
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

25.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

26.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

27.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

28.
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.

29.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

30.
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.

31.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

32.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

33.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

34.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

35.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

36.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

37.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

38.
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

39.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

41.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

42.
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

43.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

44.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

45.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

46.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

47.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

48.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

49.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

50.
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
