Control quotes
Control
Civilisation with me shall mean--not more wealth, more finery, more self- indulgence, even more aesthetic and artistic luxury--but more virtue, more knowledge, more self-control, even though I earn scanty bread by heavy toil.

- Lecture on Ancient Civilisation. 1874.
In human life, art may arise from almost any activity, and once it does so, it is launched on a long road of exploration, invention, freedom to the limits of extravagance, interference to the point of frustration, finally discipline, controlling constant change and growth.

- Susanne Langer
Prohibition goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes crimes out of things that are not crimes.

- Lincoln, Abraham
We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind of self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.

- James Madison
The workers and professionals of the world will soon be divided into two distinct groups.Those who will control computers and those who will be controlled by computers.It would be best for you to be in the former group.

- Eigen, Lewis D.
I am not a glutton -- I am an explorer of food.

- Bombeck, Erma
The world values the seer above all men, and has always done so. Nay, it values all men in proportion as they partake of the character of seers. The Elgin Marbles and a decision of John Marshall are valued for the same reason. What we feel in them is a painstaking submission to facts beyond the author's control, and to ideas imposed upon him by his vision. So with Beethoven's Symphonies, with Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations -- with any conceivable output of the human mind of which you approve. You love them because you say, These things were not made, they were seen.

- Chapman, John Jay
Learn from your parents mistakes -- use birth control.

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.

- Susan Polis Schutz
If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable what then?

- George Orwell
Self-control is the chief element in self-respect and self-respect is the chief element in courage.

- Thucydides
Imagine believing in the control of inflation by curbing the money supply! That is like deciding to stop your dog fouling the sidewalk by plugging up its rear end. It is highly unlikely to succeed, but if it does it kills the hound.

- Stephens, Michael D.
Quality has to be caused, not controlled.

- Philip Crosby
Anytime you think that the problem is out there, that thought in itself may be the problem. If it is out there then you have no control and you have to wait until it changes.

When we exercise self-control on a given occasion, we win for ourselves a little credibility we can rely on the next time around. Pretty soon we develop a reputation to ourselves that we want badly to uphold. With each test that we meet, our resolve gains momentum, fueled by the fear that we may succumb and establish a damaging precedent for our own weakness.

- Daniel Akst
As the Sandwich Islander believes that the strength and valor of the enemy he kills passes into himself, so we gain the strength of the temptation we resist.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
To decide, to be at the level of choice, is to take responsibility for your life and to be in control of your life.

- Abbie M. Dale
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.

- Tracy, Brian
O Krishna, the stillness of divine union which you describe is beyond my comprehension. How can the mind, which is so restless, attain lasting peace? Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, powerful, violent; trying to control it is like trying to tame the wind.

- Bhagavad Gita
Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not.

- James, William
