A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero on arrogance, balance, budgets, control, debt, government, learning, life, people, and work

The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if Rome doesn't want to become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.

Cicero (106 - 43 BC)

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on choice, control, fashion, force, mind, pity, possessions, power, and world

When he tries to extend his power over objects, those objects gain control of him. He who is controlled by objects loses possession of his inner self... Prisoners in the world of object, they have no choice but to submit to the demands of matter! They are pressed down and crushed by external forces: fashion, the market, events, public opinion. Never in a whole lifetime do they recover their right mind!... What a pity!

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on control, heart, and needs

When the shoe fits, the foot is forgotten. When the belt fits, the belly is forgotten. When the heart is right, "for" and "against" are forgotten. No drives, no compulsions, no needs, no attractions: Then your affairs are under control. You are a free man.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Christopher McDowell on books, control, garden, humility, learning, nature, sacred, spirituality, theology, and understanding

There is a theology to gardening that few of us consider, but to understand this theology means relinquishing much control - our arsenal of books, techniques, tools, chemicals, fertilizers, fancy hybrids, and expectations. Yet, that is exactly what we must do if we are to fully embrace a more spiritual form of gardening. As a part of Nature we must learn to enter our garden as if it were truly sacred, we must learn to enter with humility.

A Quote by Charles Kingsley on contentment, control, diligence, force, god, idleness, self-control, strength, and work

Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do which must be done, whether you like it or not. Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance, self-control, diligence, strength of will, content, and a hundred other virtues which the idle never know.
