The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

16.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

Francis, Clarence

30.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

Lowell, James Russell

33.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
