“Do not make mistakes about character. That is the worst and yet easiest error. Better be cheated in price than in quality of goods. In dealing with people, more than with other things, it is necessary to look within. To know people is different from knowing things. It is profound philosophy to sound the depths of feeling and distinguish traits of character. People must be studied as deeply as books.”
The Art of Worldly Wisdom, B. Gracian
