control

A Quote by Fred Allen on control, heart, people, and television

Television is a triumph of equipment over people, and the minds that control it are so small that you could put them in a gnat's navel with room left over for two caraway seeds and an agent's heart.

Fred Allen (1894 - 1956)

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on action, behavior, control, emotion, and temper

If a man does not control his temper, it is a sad admission that he is not in control of his thoughts. He then becomes a victim of his own passions and emotions, which lead him to actions that are totally unfit for civilized behavior, let alone behavior for a priesthood holder.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on birth, children, control, destruction, devil, family, fatherhood, home, people, politics, rebellion, women, words, and path

And so today, the undermining of the home and family is on the increase, with the devil anxiously working to displace the father as the head of the home and create rebellion among the children. [Isaiah] describes the condition when [he] states, "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them." and then these words follow-and consider these words seriously when you think of those political leaders who are promoting birth control and abortion: "O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12 KJV

A Quote by Ermest Kurtz & Katherine Ketchman on control, possessions, and spirituality

Spirituality points, always, beyond: beyond the ordinary, beyond possession, beyond the narrow confines of the self, and - above all - beyond expectations. Because "the spiritual" is beyond our control, it is never exactly what we expect.

A Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox on control, darkness, god, immortality, play, reason, self-control, soul, strength, work, and path

Lean on thyself until thy strength is tried; Then ask God's help; it will not be denied. Use thine own sight to see the way to go; When darkness falls ask God the path to show. Think for thyself and reason out thy plan; God has His work and thou hast thine. Exert thy will and use for self-control; God gave thee jurisdiction of thy soul. All thine immortal powers bring into play; Think, act, strive, reason, and look up and pray.

A Quote by Elihu Root on action, blindness, brothers, charity, control, country, desires, duty, feeling, government, happiness, individuality, judgment, life, love, nobility, people, popularity, prejudice, principles, progress, prosperity, reason, self-c

True love of country is not mere blind partisanship. It is regard for the people of one's country and all of them; it is a feeling of fellowship and brotherhood for all of them; it is a desire for the prosperity and happiness of all of them; it is kindly and considerate judgment toward all of them. The first duty of popular self-government is individual self-control. The essential condition of true progress is that it shall be based upon grounds of reason, and not prejudice. Lincoln's noble sentiment of charity for all and malice toward none was not a specific for the Civil War, but is a living principle of action.

A Quote by E. B. White on communism, control, health, loyalty, needs, praise, security, testing, and thought

Security, for me, took a tumble not when I read that there were Communists in Hollywood but when I read your editorial in praise of loyalty testing and thought control. If a man is in health, he doesn't need to take anybody else's temperature to know where he is going.
