Character

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

Miller, Arthur

27.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.

James, William
