Sivananda, Sri Swami

6.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

Luther, John

8.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

15.
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
