Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

36.
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.
