Character

It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
- Covey, Stephen R.

If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
