Best Quotes about Control
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.
What man's mind can create, man's character can control.
Edison, Thomas A.
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.
No temptation can gravitate to a man unless there is that is his heart which is capable of responding to it
The control of the palate is a valuable aid for the control of the mind.

Let nothing come between you and the light.
Thoreau, Henry David
While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.
You are the one who can stretch your own horizon.
Magnin, Edgar F.
Don't let the negativity given to you by the world disempower you. Instead give to yourself that which empowers you.
The strong man is the one who is able to intercept at will the communication between the senses and the mind.
Give me beauty in the inward soul; may the outward and the inward man be at one.
I have only one counsel for you -- be master.
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.
You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.
If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.
Anthony, Dr. Robert
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.
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.
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.
Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life.
If you don't program yourself, life will program you!
The best way to navigate through life is to give up all of our controls.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.
Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.
The bird of paradise alights only on the hand that does not grasp.
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.
Nothing gives a person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.
Only my condemnation injures me.
A Course In Miracles
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.
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
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 know is to control.
When we direct our thoughts properly, we can control our emotions...
Stone, W. Clement
What I do say is that no man is good enough to govern another man without that other's consent.
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.
I am not a glutton -- I am an explorer of food.
You brain shall be your servant instead of your master, You will rule it instead of allowing it to rule you.
Popplestone, Charles E.
You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.
No man is fit to command another that cannot command himself.
No one can make you jealous, angry, vengeful, or greedy -- unless you let him.
If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
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
If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.
Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.
Flow with whatever is happening and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.
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.
It's essential to distinguish between events that are really beyond your control and events you caused yourself.
Nothing external to you has any power over you.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The one thing over which you have absolute control is your own thoughts. It is this that puts you in a position to control your own destiny.
Thomas, Paul G.
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.
