A Quote by Don Marquis on control, good, honesty, and profit

Honesty is a good thing, but it is not profitable to its possessor unless it is kept under control. If you are not honest at all everybody hates you, and if you are absolutely honest you get martyred.

A Quote by Don DeLillo on anxiety, chaos, control, death, design, dignity, effort, failure, funerals, government, laws, life, nations, order, perfection, and world

We start our lives in chaos, in babble. As we surge up into the world, we try to devise a shape, a plan. There is dignity in this. Your whole life is a plot, a scheme, a diagram. It is a failed scheme but that's not the point. To plot is to affirm life, to seek shape and control. Even after death, most particularly after death, the search continues. Burial rites are an attempt to complete the scheme, in ritual. Picture a state funeral. It is all precision, detail, order, design. The nation holds its breath. The efforts of a huge and powerful government are brought to bear on a ceremony that will shed the last trace of chaos. If all geos well, if they bring it off, some natural law of perfection is obeyed. The nation is delivered from anxiety, the deceased's life is redeemed, life itself is strengthened, reaffirmed

A Quote by David Oman McKay on benevolence, character, charity, communication, control, deed, dignity, divinity, fatherhood, harmony, justice, laws, life, love, power, self-control, thought, truth, and wisdom

The virtues that combined to make this perfect character are truth, justice, wisdom, benevolence, and self control. His every thought, word, and deed was in harmony with divine law and therefore true. The channel of communication between him and the Father was constantly open so that truth which 'rests upon revelation' was always known to him. . . . His short though eventful life was one of benevolence which comprehends charity and love. His self-control, whether exemplified in his power over his appetites and passions or his dignity and poise when before his persecutors, was perfect-was divine.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on animals, control, life, passion, religion, and temper

A man who cannot control his temper is not very likely to control his passion, and no matter what his pretensions in religion, he moves in daily life very close to the animal plane.

A Quote by Daniel Webster on christianity, control, country, duty, fear, fortune, future, god, heart, hope, justice, life, posterity, religion, and respect

IF WE AND OUR POSTERITY SHALL BE TRUE TO THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION, IF WE AND THEY SHALL LIVE ALWAYS IN THE FEAR OF GOD AND SHALL RESPECT HIS COMMANDMENTS, IF WE AND THEY SHALL MAINTAIN JUST MORAL SENTIMENTS AND SUCH CONSCIENTIOUS CONVICTIONS OF DUTY AS SHALL CONTROL THE HEART AND LIFE, WE MAY HAVE THE HIGHEST HOPES OF THE FUTURE FORTUNES OF OUR COUNTRY. OUR COUNTRY WILL GO ON PROSPERING.

A Quote by Cyril Connolly on control, disorder, and memory

Our memories are card indexes - consulted, and then and then returned in disorder, by authorities whom we do not control.

A Quote by Col. John S. Roosma on ability, body, challenge, cheerfulness, control, disappointment, discipline, enemies, life, simplicity, soldiers, and temper

One of man's finest qualities is described by the simple word " guts "-the ability to take it. If you have the discipline to stand fast when your body wants to run, if you can control your temper and remain cheerful in the face of monotony or disappointment, you have " guts " in the soldiering sense. This ability to take it must be trained-the training is hard, mental as well as physical. But once ingrained, you can face and flail the enemy as a soldier, and enjoy the challenges of life as a civilian.

Col. John S. Roosma

I've got a firm policy on gun control. If there's a gun around, I want to be the one controlling it.
