“It is true, of course, that a genius may, on certain lines, do more than a brave and manly fellow who is not a genius … But, in the long run, in the great battle of life, no brilliancy of intellect, no perfection of bodily development, will count when weighed in the balance against that assemblage of virtues, active and passive, of moral qualities, which we group together under the name of character.”

      – Theodore Roosevelt
A Strenuous Life, 1900
