Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

2.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

3.
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

4.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

5.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

6.
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

7.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

8.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

9.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

10.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

11.
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

12.
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

13.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

14.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

15.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

16.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

17.
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

18.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

19.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

20.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

21.
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

22.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

23.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

24.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

26.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

27.
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

28.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

29.
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

30.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

31.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

32.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

33.
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.

34.
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

35.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

36.
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

37.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

38.
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

39.
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.

40.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

41.
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

42.
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

43.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

44.
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

45.
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

46.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

47.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

48.
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

49.
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

50.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James
