Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

2.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

3.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

4.
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.

5.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

6.
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.

7.
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.

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

9.
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

10.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

11.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

12.
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

13.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

14.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

15.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

16.
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

17.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

18.
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

19.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

20.
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.

21.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

22.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

23.
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.

24.
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

25.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

26.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

27.
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

28.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

29.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

30.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

31.
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

32.
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.

33.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

34.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

35.
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.

36.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

37.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

38.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

39.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

40.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

41.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

42.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

43.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

47.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

48.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

49.
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

50.
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
