Ralph Waldo Emerson
   
"The true test of civilization is not the census, nor the size of cities, nor the crops - no, but the kind of man the country turns out."

"Our people are slow to learn the wisdom of sending character instead of talent to Congress. Again and again they have sent a man of great acuteness, a fine scholar, a fine forensic orator, and some master of the brawls has crunched him up in his hands like a bit of paper."

“If you will think about what you ought to do for other people, your character will take care of itself. Character is a by-product, and any man who devotes himself to its cultivation in his own case will become a selfish prig.”
— Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924)

"We are what we seem to be."
— Willard Gaylin
