Character Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

3.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

5.
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

6.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

7.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

8.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

9.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

10.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

11.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

12.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

13.
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

14.
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

15.
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.

16.
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

17.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

18.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

19.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

20.
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.

21.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

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

23.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

24.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

25.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

26.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

27.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

30.

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

32.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

36.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

38.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

39.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

40.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

41.
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.

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
