Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

Gill, Vince

16.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

Dyke, Henry Van

James, William

28.
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.
Cicero, Marcus T.

29.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

30.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
