Everyone has their own idea of what it means to have character. For Larry Cowsert, the concept was shaped by lessons he learned from his grandfather and others close to him. These lessons were so profoundly impactful that Cowsert decided to chronicle them here, in a captivating, easy-to-read book, so that others can learn from and use them to develop their own concepts of character.These aphorisms were funny, clever, provocative, and even harsh, but they captured the author’s attention and demanded thought. In these pages, the author refers to these "sayings" as lessons and, by using places, times and people in history shows the reader just how each can help improve and strengthen our own character.
