Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

3.
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.

4.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

5.
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

6.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

7.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

8.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

12.
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

13.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

14.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

15.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

16.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

17.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

19.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

20.
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.

21.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

22.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

23.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

24.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

25.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

26.
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

27.
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

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

30.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

31.
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

32.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
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

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

35.
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

36.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

37.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

38.
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

39.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

40.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

41.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

42.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

43.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

45.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

46.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

47.
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

48.
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

49.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

50.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham
