Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

2.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

3.
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

4.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

5.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

6.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

7.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

8.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

9.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

10.
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

11.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

12.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

13.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

14.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

15.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

16.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

17.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

18.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

19.
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

20.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

21.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

22.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

23.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

24.
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.

25.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

26.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

27.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

29.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

30.
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

31.
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

32.
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

33.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

34.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

35.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

36.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

37.
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

38.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

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

40.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

41.
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

42.
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.

43.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

44.
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

45.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

46.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

47.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

48.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

49.
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.

50.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana
