Best Quotes about Character

1.
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

2.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

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

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

Virgil

8.
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

9.

Lubbock, Sir John

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

16.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

17.
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

18.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

Collins, Marva

Buren, Abigail Van

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

24.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.

Trotsky, Leon

Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

27.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.

William Carleton

29.
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

30.
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

During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

32.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

33.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

34.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.

Richard Greenberg

39.
