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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

2.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

3.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

8.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

9.
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

10.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

11.
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

12.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

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 person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

15.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

16.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

17.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

18.
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.

19.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

20.
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

21.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

22.
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

23.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

24.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

25.
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

26.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

27.
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

28.
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

29.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

30.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

31.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

32.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

33.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

34.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

35.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

36.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

37.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

38.
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

39.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

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

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

44.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

45.
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

46.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
