Control quotes
Control
Even though these technological advances originally sought to control information and bring order to the office, in many instances they have done just the opposite. The electronic office promised to reduce paper work and lessen work loads, but it has, in fact, generated more information that must sill be printed and -even more challenging-be assimilated. Since computers entered office systems, paper utilization has increased six-fold.

- Moore, Peter D.
Many people would be more truthful were it not for their uncontrollable desire to talk.

- Edgar Watson Howe
If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.

- Hill, Napoleon
The highest possible stage in moral culture is when we recognize that we ought to control our thoughts.

- Charles Darwin
A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out to accomplish it. He should make this purpose the centralizing point of his thoughts. It may take the form of a spiritual ideal, or it may be a worldly object, according to his nature at the time being; but whichever it is, he should steadily focus his thought forces upon the object which he has set before him. He should make this purpose his supreme duty, and should devote himself to its attainment, not allowing his thoughts to wander away into ephemeral fancies, longings, and imaginings. This is the royal road to self-control and true concentration of thought. Even if he fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must until weakness is overcome), the strength of character gained will be the measure of his true success, and this will form a new starting point for future power and triumph.

- Allen, James
A theory of the middle class: that it is not to be determined by its financial situation but rather by its relation to government. That is, one could shade down from an actual ruling or governing class to a class hopelessly out of relation to government, thinking of government as beyond its control, of itself as wholly controlled by government. Somewhere in between and In gradations is the group that has the sense that gov't exists for it, and shapes its consciousness accordingly.

- Trilling, Lionel
No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.

- Angelis, Barbara De
The German intellect wants the French sprightliness, the fine practical understanding of the English, and the American adventure; but it has a certain probity, which never rests in a superficial performance, but asks steadily, To what end? A German public asks for a controlling sincerity.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A man with a surplus can control circumstances, but a man without a surplus is controlled by them, and often has no opportunity to exercise judgment.

- Firestone, Harvey S.
When I grip the wheel too tight, I find I lose control.

- Rapson, Steve
You are the one who can stretch your own horizon.

- Magnin, Edgar F.
When a book, any sort of book, reaches a certain intensity of artistic performance it becomes literature. That intensity may be a matter of style, situation, character, emotional tone, or idea, or half a dozen other things. It may also be a perfection of control over the movement of a story similar to the control a great pitcher has over the ball.

- Chandler, Raymond
Quarrel not at all. No man resolved to make the most of himself can spare time for personal contention. Still less can he afford to take all the consequences, including the vitiating of his temper and loss of self control. Yield larger things to which you can show no more than equal right; and yield lesser ones, though clearly your own. Better give your path to a dog than be bitten by him in contesting for the right. Even killing the dog would not cure the bite.

- Lincoln, Abraham
There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.

- Adler, Freda
Concern should drive us into action and not into a depression. No man is free who cannot control himself.

- Pythagoras
We human beings do have some genuine freedom of choice and therefore some effective control over our own destinies. I am not a determinist. But I also believe that the decisive choice is seldom the latest choice in the series. More often than not, it will turn out to be some choice made relatively far back in the past.

- Toynbee, Arnold
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.

- Bronowski, Jacob
When you relinquish the desire to control your future, you can have more happiness.

- Nicole Kidman
No man is fit to command another that cannot command himself.

- Penn, William
What a mistake to suppose that the passions are strongest in youth! The passions are not stronger, but the control over them is weaker! They are more easily excited, they are more violent and apparent; but they have less energy, less durability, less intense and concentrated power than in the maturer life.

- Edward Bulwer-Lytton
