Character is the most important and differentiating aspect of human life. In my view, when Wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when Health is lost, something is lost; but when Character is lost, everything is lost. You can judge the Character of a woman/man by how she/he treats fellow people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people and animals who can't fight back. Character is the biggest asset, so don't lose it for any price.

Civilization...is a matter of imponderables, of delight in the thins of the mind, of love of beauty, of honor, grace, courtesy, delicate feeling.
