A Quote by Leo J. Muir on absence, admiration, character, good, habits, and pity

It is probably a sound definition of character to say that it is habitual self-mastery toward good ends. . . . Character is a subtle thing. Its sources are obscure, its roots delicate and invisible. We know it when we see it and it always commands our admiration, and the absence of it our pity; but it is largely a matter of will.

Leo J. Muir
