Some Thoughts On Temperament From Various Authors

“Fear is an inhibitor that has kept more people from fulfilling their destiny than any other one emotion.”

Tim LaHaye

“Every instinct that is found in any man is in all men. The strength of the emotion may not be so overpowering, the barriers against possession not so insurmountable, the urge to accomplish the desire less keen. With some, inhibitions and urges may be neutralized by other tendencies. But with every being the primal emotions are there. All men have an emotion to kill; when they strongly dislike some one they involuntarily wish he was dead. I have never killed any one, but I have read some obituary notices with great satisfaction.”

Clarence Darrow

“A man far oftener appears to have a decided character from persistently following his temperament than from persistently following his principles.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“You’ll make bundle of blunders if you consider yourself too clever to look at anothers work.”

Michael Bassey Johnson

“I had a terrible temper, after all, and though it rarely erupted, when it did it frightened me and anyone near its epicenter. It was the only crack, but a disturbing one, in the otherwise vacuum-sealed casing of my behavior.”
