A Quote by Bill George on integrity, character, and substance

I think we've been choosing boards of directors and many wrong leaders for the wrong reason. We choose people for their image, their charisma, their style and we should be choosing them for their integrity, for their character, and their substance.

Character is like a tree and reputation is like a shadow, the shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on life, imagination, imaginary, change, parting, leaving, flux, distance, fate, time, crossroads, fiction, past, present, future, adventure, character, picaresque, road, travel, author, writing, luke soloman, and free novel

I didn’t look back. I couldn’t. Such is life, imaginary or otherwise: a continuous parting of ways, a constant flux of approximation and distanciation, lines of fate intersecting at a point which is no-time, a theoretical crossroads fictitiously “present,” an unstable ice floe forever drifting between was and will be. The Adventure called and I followed with my thumb like a character being written by an intractable author. Which, of course, I was.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, tragedy, and character

Eudaimonia is natural fatalism, the self-destiny of character--daimones being traditionally the lowest-order divinities, steering us to our unknown ends.  Sometimes disaster befalls us because we veer from our own intrinsic good sense; sometimes it occurs because we have followed our own intrinsic good sense but this is rooted in an ultimately or obscurely dysdaimonic character.  Tragedy is not always the result of a "mistake"; or sometimes the mistake lies in what we are, not what we do.  Unlike mere misfortune or chance, tragedy is rooted in primal actions and preconceptions of our character.  Petty-souled individuals (micropsychia) are unlikely to bring tragedy on themselves; in a way, they already are tragic beings normally and all of the time.  Only ambitious and self-driving individuals of great soul (megalopsychia) bring on themselves the risk of tragedy in its truest form, a radical overstepping of bounds.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on talking, conversation, salesman, death, death rattle, laughter, reminiscing, memory, nostalgia, character, luke soloman, identity, discovery, and reinvention

We shook hands. Norm’s hand felt like salted mackerel. Our brief interaction had put him in a talkative mood. “There’s no business like shoe business,” he uttered with a death rattle laugh, heh heh, peering at me sideways like a depraved cherub as he droned on and on about the good old days in the shoe business, the bonus money and the belles whose stockinged ankles he fondled when he could still get a boner … but my mind was elsewhere. I couldn’t stop thinking about Luke Soloman, Luke Soloman, Luke Soloman. Who was this character?
