Some Thoughts On Self-control From Various Authors

“One can be the master of what one does, but never of what one feels.”

Gustave Flaubert

“Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn—and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.”

Dale Carnegie

“What we call our destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny. One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background. All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”

Anias Nin

“I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.”

Robert E. Lee

“To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”

Eleanor Roosevelt
