Excerpt from How Character Is Formed
Character is the moral basis of life. It is the' foundation on which the lower habitation of our earthly destiny, and the higher superstructure of our eternal fate, are built, for woe and destruction, or for permanency and weal. For this life of ours is, like the Bridge of Sighs, a palace and a prison on each hand; with this difference, that it is no longer a Council of Three, masked and veiled in impenetrable disguises, but our own selves, who, with perfect free dom, construct those elements that lead to happiness or misery by guiding the conduct of our lives.
