Control Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Control

1.
No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys.
Horton, Doug

2.
There is no finer sensations in life that which comes with victory over one's self. Go forward to a goal of inward achievement, brushing aside all your old internal enemies as you advance.
Young, Vash

3.
Every man wishes to rule the world. Unfortunately, the world rules every man.
Johnson, Jeremy P.

4.
The bird of paradise alights only on the hand that does not grasp.
Berry, John

5.
Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.
Mandino, Og

6.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
Buddha

7.
He is great enough that is his own master.
Hall, Joseph

8.
If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.
Hill, Napoleon

9.
When you do the wrong thing, knowing it is wrong, you do so because you haven't developed the habit of effectively controlling or neutralizing strong inner urges that tempt you, or because you have established the wrong habit and don't know how to eliminate them effectively.
Stone, W. Clement

10.
Everybody has a hot button. Who is pushing yours? While you probably cannot control that person, you CAN control the way you react to them.

11.
Oh while I live, to be the ruler of life, not a slave, to meet life as a powerful conqueror, and nothing exterior to me will ever take command of me.
Whitman, Walt

12.
Nothing gives a person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.
Jefferson, Thomas

13.
Only my condemnation injures me.
A Course In Miracles

14.
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

15.
While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.
Franklin, Benjamin

16.
Your real self -- the I am I -- is master of this land, the ruler of this empire. You rightfully have power and dominion over it, all its inhabitants, and all contained in its realm.
Collier, Robert

17.
When I grip the wheel too tight, I find I lose control.
Rapson, Steve

18.
You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.
Proverb, Chinese

19.
If you don't program yourself, life will program you!
Brown, Les

20.
The word is control. That's my ultimate -- to have control.
Faldo, Nick

21.
Slight small injuries, and they will become none at all.
Fuller, Thomas

22.
What I do say is that no man is good enough to govern another man without that other's consent.
Lincoln, Abraham

23.
Give me beauty in the inward soul; may the outward and the inward man be at one.
Socrates

24.
We fail to see that we can control our own destiny; make ourselves do whatever is possible; make ourselves become whatever we long to be.
Marden, Orison Swett

25.
Your are in charge. You have the ability to master you destiny.
Mccarthy, Michael J.

26.
Question: Why are we Masters of our Fate, the captains of our souls? Because we have the power to control our thoughts, our attitudes. That is why many people live in the withering negative world. That is why many people live in the Positive Faith world.
Montapert, Alfred A.

27.
Are you a SNIOP? Someone who is Sensitive to the Negative Influence Of Others?
Ziglar, Zig

28.
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

29.
Winners take chances. Like everyone else, they fear failing, but they refuse to let fear control them.
Simms, Nancy

30.
The first and the best victory is to conquer self.
Plato

31.
Nothing external to you has any power over you.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

32.
You are the one who can stretch your own horizon.
Magnin, Edgar F.

What man's mind can create, man's character can control.
Edison, Thomas A.

Proverb, Jewish

Thomas, Paul G.

The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you.
Robbins, Anthony

43.
The best way to navigate through life is to give up all of our controls.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

44.
I have only one counsel for you -- be master.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

45.
It is far more important that one's life should be perceived than it should be transformed; for no sooner has it been perceived, than it transforms itself of its own accord.

46.
No one can make you jealous, angry, vengeful, or greedy -- unless you let him.
Hill, Napoleon

47.
I cannot make the universe obey me. I cannot make other people conform to my own whims and fancies. I cannot make even my own body obey me.
Merton, Thomas
