A Quote by J. Hawes on action, birth, character, good, honor, parenthood, principles, reward, talent, virtue, and wealth

A good character is, in all cases, the fruit of personal exertion. It is not inherited from parents; it is not created by external advantages; it is no necessary appendage of birth, wealth, talents, or station; but it is the result of one's own endeavors-the fruit and reward of good principles manifested in a course of virtuous and honorable action.
