Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
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

3.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

4.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

5.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

6.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

7.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

8.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

9.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

10.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

11.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

12.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

13.
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.

14.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

15.
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

16.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

17.
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

18.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

19.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

20.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

21.
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.

22.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

23.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

24.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

25.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

26.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

27.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

28.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

30.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

31.
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.

32.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

33.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

34.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

35.
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

36.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

37.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

38.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.

39.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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.

41.
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

42.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

43.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

47.
