Bhagvad Gita on the Qualities of Men

Splendor, forgiveness, fortitude, cleanliness, absence of malice and absence of pride; these are the qualities of those endowed with divine virtues, O Arjuna.

Fearlessness, purity of heart, perseverance in the yoga of knowledge, charity, sense restraint, sacrifice, study of scriptures, austerity, honesty are the transcendental qualities belonging to godly men.

Hypocrisy, arrogance, pride, anger, harshness and ignorance, these are the marks of those who are born with demonic qualities.
