Motivational Quotes

Character

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
Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

2.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

3.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

4.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

5.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

6.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

7.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

8.
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.

9.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

13.
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.

14.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

15.
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

16.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

18.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

19.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

23.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

24.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

25.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

26.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

27.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

28.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

29.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

30.
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

31.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

32.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

33.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

34.
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

35.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

36.
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

37.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

38.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

39.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

40.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

41.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

42.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.

43.
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

44.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

45.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

46.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

47.
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

48.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

49.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

50.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie
