Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education'
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Character is not cut in marble – it is not something solid and unalterable. It is something living and changing.'
True humility...is the low but deep and firm foundation of all virtues.'
Virtue is about the difficult and the good'
Education has for its object the formation of character.'
