who, as Arnold relates, "with equanimity surveys
Lustre of goodness, strife of passion, sloth
Of ignorance, not angry if they are,
Not wishful when they are not ... who sits
A sojourner and stranger in their midst
Unruffled, standing off, saying—serene—
When troubles break, 'These be the Qualities!'"

|Leave it to Psmith||Ronald Psmith||Wodehouse|
|A Man in Full||Conrad Hensley||Wolfe|
