Sunday Quote Bag: Character thoughts…

Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.  – Solon (638 BC – 559 BC)
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.  – Abraham Lincoln
Voices that loud are always meant to bully. Do not be bullied. Acts of bravery don’t always take place on battlefields. They can take place in your heart, when you have the courage to honor your character, your intellect, your inclinations, and, yes your soul by listening to its clean, clear voice of direction instead of following the muddied messages of a timid world.  – Anna Quindlen
To enjoy the things we ought and to hate the things we ought has the greatest bearing on excellence of character.  – Aristotle
