Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

3.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

4.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

5.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

6.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

7.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

8.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

9.
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

10.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

11.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

12.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

13.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

14.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

15.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

16.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

17.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

18.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

19.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

20.
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

21.
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

22.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

23.
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

24.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

25.
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

26.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

27.
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.

28.
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.

29.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

30.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

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.
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

33.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

34.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

35.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

36.
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

37.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

38.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

Thomas, John M.

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

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

43.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

44.

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
