Robbins, Anthony

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

49.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

50.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim
