28.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

29.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.

Wooden, John

39.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

Covey, Stephen R.

One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
