Motivational Quotes

Character

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

Best Quotes about Character

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

To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

3.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

4.
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.
Trotsky, Leon

5.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

6.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.

Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.

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.

11.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

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

I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

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

16.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

17.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

18.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

19.
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

20.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

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

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

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.

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

25.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

26.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

27.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

28.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

29.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

30.

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

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

Baldwin, Faith

Richter, Jean Paul

39.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
