Motivational Quotes

Character

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.

Best Quotes about Character

1.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

2.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

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.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

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.

10.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

11.
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

12.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

13.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

14.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

15.
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

16.
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.

17.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

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

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

22.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

23.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

24.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

25.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

26.
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.

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

28.
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.

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

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

33.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

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

35.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

36.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith
