Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

Richard Greenberg

31.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

32.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

33.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur
