Since you are precious and special in my sight, and I love you, I will hand over people in place of you, nations in place of your life.
[Isa 43:4 NET]
Among the happiest and proudest possessions of a man is his character. It is a wreath, it is a bank in itself. What is the essence and life of character? Principle, integrity, independence.
~ Bulwer Lytton ~
No great genius was ever without some mixture of madness, nor can anything grand or superior to the voice of common mortals be spoken except by the agitated soul.
~ Aristotle ~
Handsome is that handsome does.
~ Oliver Goldsmith ~
Lord God, forbid that I should try to supplant character with manners and worldly goods. May I remember that thou seest me, and knowest me, and I need no shield from thee. Help me that I may be found acceptable while thou dost search me to the depths of the soul. Amen.
