Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

32.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.

Trotsky, Leon

34.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

35.

Confucius

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.

47.
