Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

3.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

4.
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

5.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

9.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

11.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

12.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

13.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

14.
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.

15.
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

16.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

17.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

18.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

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

20.
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

21.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

22.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

23.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

24.
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.

25.
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

26.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

27.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

28.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

29.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

30.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

31.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

32.
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

33.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

34.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

35.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

36.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

37.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

38.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
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.

40.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

41.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

42.
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.

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

48.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

49.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

50.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch
