I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
