The bird of paradise alights only on the hand that does not grasp.

Control Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Control

1.
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.
Gandhi, Mahatma

2.
The consuming desire of most human beings is deliberately to plant their whole life in the hands of some other person. I would describe this method of searching for happiness as immature. Development of character consists solely in moving toward self-sufficiency.
Crisp, Quentin

3.
Only my condemnation injures me.
A Course In Miracles

4.
Nothing gives a person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.
Jefferson, Thomas

5.
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.
Bentham, John

6.
You brain shall be your servant instead of your master, You will rule it instead of allowing it to rule you.
Popplestone, Charles E.

7.
The strong man is the one who is able to intercept at will the communication between the senses and the mind.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

8.
If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

9.
Winners take chances. Like everyone else, they fear failing, but they refuse to let fear control them.
Simms, Nancy

10.
He is great enough that is his own master.
Hall, Joseph

11.
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

12.
Don't let the negativity given to you by the world disempower you. Instead give to yourself that which empowers you.
Brown, Les

13.
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

14.
Never let the other fellow set the agenda.
Baker, James

15.
You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.
Tracy, Brian

16.
Remain calm, serene, always in command of yourself. You will then find out how easy it is to get along.
Yogananda, Paramahansa

17.
Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.
Eastwood, Clint

18.
Flow with whatever is happening and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.
Chuang Tzu

19.
The first and the best victory is to conquer self.
Plato

20.
While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.
Franklin, Benjamin

21.
Getting your house in order and reducing the confusion gives you more control over your life. Personal organization some how releases or frees you to operate more effectively.
King, Larry

22.
Slight small injuries, and they will become none at all.
Fuller, Thomas

23.
He who has the pepper may season as he lists.
Herbert, George

24.
Are we controlled by our thoughts, or are we controlling our thoughts?
Holliwell, Raymond

25.
If you don't program yourself, life will program you!
Brown, Les

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.
I am not a glutton -- I am an explorer of food.
Bombeck, Erma

28.
What man's mind can create, man's character can control.
Edison, Thomas A.

29.
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

30.
Let nothing come between you and the light.
Thoreau, Henry David

31.
No temptation can gravitate to a man unless there is that is his heart which is capable of responding to it
Allen, James

32.
It's all happening too fast. I've got to put the brakes on or I'll smack into something.
Gibson, Mel

33.
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

34.
Every man wishes to rule the world. Unfortunately, the world rules every man.
Johnson, Jeremy P.

35.
Don't let other people tell you what you want.
Riley, Pat

36.
No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys.
Horton, Doug

37.
Never give anyone total access to your pockets, your pockets, your purse or your mind.

38.
The control of the palate is a valuable aid for the control of the mind.
Gandhi, Mahatma

39.
No one can make you jealous, angry, vengeful, or greedy -- unless you let him.
Hill, Napoleon

40.
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

41.
Nothing external to you has any power over you.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
The word is control. That's my ultimate -- to have control.
Faldo, Nick

43.
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

44.
No man is fit to command another that cannot command himself.
Penn, William

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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.

48.
Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.
Lincoln, Abraham

49.
We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.

50.
When I grip the wheel too tight, I find I lose control.
Rapson, Steve
