For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

47.

Miller, Arthur

50.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
