Jefferson, Thomas

25.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

27.

43.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

James, William
