The Influence of Habit on Character Formation

Thomas J Wheelwright, Fordham University


The building of character is one of the most important occupations of life. It matters little what works a man may leave in the world; it matters little what power, what wealth, what admiration he has won; his real success is measured by what he has accomplished during life’s years in his own soul.If he has worked well to make his soul a beautiful temple of God - embellished with virtues and good works - then to the eye of the Almighty, he has been a success - no matter what men may think.
