A Quote by Samuel Smiles on achievement, control, difficulty, fighting, impossibility, life, men, patience, self-control, simplicity, and success

For want of self-restraint many men are engaged all their lives in fighting with difficulties of their own making, and rendering success impossible by their own cross-grained ungentleness; whilst others, it may be much less gifted, make their way and achieve success by simple patience, equanimity, and self-control.

Samuel Smiles (1812 - 1904)
