More particularly have I resented the sneers at Main Street. For I have known that in the cottages that lay behind the street rested the strength of our national character  (National Character Quotes) The German national character is a favorite subject of character experts, probably because the less mature a nation, the more she is an object of criticism and not of history  (National Character Quotes) Most importantly, nothing has happened to change my conviction that freedom and the love of liberty remain the essential defining attributes of our national character as a people  (National Character Quotes) A character standard is far more important than even a gold standard.
