Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

2.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

3.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

4.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

5.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

6.
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

7.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

8.
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

9.
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.

10.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

11.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

12.
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.

13.
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

14.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

15.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

16.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

17.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

18.
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

19.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

20.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

21.
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

22.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

23.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

24.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

25.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

26.
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

27.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

28.
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.

29.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

30.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

31.
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

32.
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

33.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

34.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

35.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

37.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

38.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

39.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

40.
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

41.
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

42.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

44.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

45.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

46.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

47.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

48.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

49.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

50.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
