Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

7.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

8.
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.

9.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

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

Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

14.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

15.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

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

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

18.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

19.
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

20.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

21.
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

22.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

23.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

24.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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.

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

30.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

31.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

32.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

33.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

34.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

35.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

36.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

37.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

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.

43.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.

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.
