My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.

Dyke, Henry Van
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
