    INFLUENCE OF FEMALE CHARACTER. 1. Moral Effect.—It is in its moral effect on the mind and the heart of man, that the influence of woman is most powerful and important. In the diversity of tastes, habits, inclinations, and pursuits of the two sexes, is found a most beneficent provision for controlling the force and extravagance of human passion.   Most of us probably don’t believe we need a formal definition of happiness; we know it when we feel it, and we often use the term to describe a range of positive emotions, including joy, pride, contentment, and gratitude. But to understand the causes and effects of happiness, researchers first need to define it. Many of them use the term interchangeably .

      The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education. –Martin Luther King, Jr. Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character. Contending for the rights of woman, my main argument is built on this simple principle, that if she be not prepared by education to become the companion of man, she will stop the progress of knowledge, for truth must be common to all, or it will be inefficacious with respect to its influence on general practice.

    ITS INFLUENCE ON MORALS AND HAPPINESS. BY WILLIAM GODWIN. THE FOURTH EDITION IN TWO VOLUMES. VOL I. LONDON: , 5 PAUL'S ALLEY, PATERNOSTER ROW. Few works of literature are held to be of more general use, than those which treat in a methodical and elementary way of the principles of science.   The more good influences with which we surround ourselves, the happier we'll be; the more people we'll "convert" into good influences (by our own good influence), the more value we will have.

Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, a two-volume novel following the four March sisters through their adolescence and young adulthood, was first published in the late years later, the book remains remarkably popular; in fact, the unassuming tale is one of the ten most beloved books in America, according to a poll released recently by Harris International.

Jeffrey Somers. Updated Septem FahrenheitRay Bradbury’s classic work of science fiction, remains relevant in the 21st century thanks in part to the subtle symbolism tied to its characters. Each character in the novel struggles with the concept of knowledge in a different way.

Brontë bases her argument both on the notion that women and men share similar temperaments and that idolatry may produce ill effects on moral character.

The most striking example of men and women sharing similar temperaments is in the character. In his recent book Character Compass, Boston University professor Scott Seider tells the story of three successful Boston-area charter schools each with a strong but relatively unique commitment to character capture some of the differences between these character education programs, Seider employs a distinction between moral character, civic character, and “performance character.”.

One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. – Malala Yousafzai. We want the education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet.

Character, on the other hand, takes longer to discern but is easier to change. That’s because character is shaped by beliefs, and with enough effort and motivation, changing one’s perspective and view of the world can lead to a shift in one’s character.
