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.

Montapert, Alfred A.
The word is control. That's my ultimate -- to have control.
To decide to be at the level of choice, is to take responsibility for your life and to be in control of your life.
Dale, Arbie M.
No temptation can gravitate to a man unless there is that is his heart which is capable of responding to it
Nature has placed mankind under the government of two sovereign masters, pain and pleasure... they govern us in all we do, in all we say, in all we think: every effort we can make to throw off our subjection, will serve but to demonstrate and confirm it.

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