Character

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
- Trotsky, Leon

Francis, Clarence

Covey, Stephen R.

If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

50.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
