Emile Souvestre.

Emerson.

  Temperament is wax before the human will and God. Natural traits are powerless before moral decisions.
Maltbie Babcock.

  The reason that women are so much more sociable than men is because they act more from the heart than the intellect.
Lamartine.    
  5
  In love we do not think of moral qualities, and scarcely of intellectual ones. Temperament and manner alone, with beauty, excite love.
Hazlitt.
