Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

2.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

3.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

4.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

5.
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.

6.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

10.
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

11.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

12.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

13.
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

14.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

15.
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.

16.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

17.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

18.
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.

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

22.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

23.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

24.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

25.
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.

26.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

27.
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.

28.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

29.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

30.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

31.
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.

32.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

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