Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

29.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can.

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