Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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.

2.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

3.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

4.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

5.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

6.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

7.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

8.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

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

11.
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

12.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

13.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

14.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

15.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

16.
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

17.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

18.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
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

20.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

21.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

22.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

23.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

24.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

25.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

26.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

27.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

28.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

29.
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

30.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

31.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

32.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

33.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
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

35.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

36.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

37.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

38.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

39.
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.

40.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

41.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

43.
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

44.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

45.
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

46.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

47.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

48.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

49.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

50.
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
