Aristotle wrote:  “The virtues arise in us neither by nature nor against nature, but we are by nature able to acquire them, and reach our complete perfection through habit.”  Acquiring virtues is how character develops.  Only when one develops the knowing habit of right action, does one become good.  One learns, one does, and one becomes.  Habit eventually forms the person one has educated oneself to become.
