Character is higher than intellect

While we were walking to a wantan mee stall at Sheung Wan, we talk about Doraemon. Everyone seem to like it! So I candidly announced that Nobita isn’t my favourite character because he’s lazy and he stole his competitor’s future wife through a robotic cat. Then Narmi said ‘but he has a heart of gold!‘. The same day, I found this quote in The Virgin Way by Richard Branson:

“Character is higher than intellect” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I thought about it for a while. Of course, character is higher than intellect. As everyone close to me has amazing personality, I don’t remember how bad character is like. I hope my blessing will not lead me to overvalue intellect.
