Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

2.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

3.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

4.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

5.
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

6.
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

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.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

9.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

10.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

11.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

12.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

13.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

14.
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

15.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

16.
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.

17.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

18.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

23.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
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

25.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

26.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

27.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

28.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

29.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

30.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

31.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

32.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

33.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

34.
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

35.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

36.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

37.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

38.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

39.
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

40.
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

41.
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

42.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

43.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

44.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

45.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

46.
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

47.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

48.
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.

49.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

50.
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.
