- Abraham Lincoln

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

25.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

26.

Euripides

Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch
