Motivational Quotes

Character

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.

It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

Milton, John
