Boardman, George D.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.

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.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
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.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
