A Quote by Marjorie Harris on consequences, control, discipline, garden, jobs, life, and thinking

This planet is an exquisitely arranged and interconnected system. What's controlled in one place is going to have consequences in another place. Our job as gardeners is to try and figure this out no matter how small our allotted space might be. Discipline has to be the watchword for our controlling hands. It means not gardening without thinking of the garden as a habitat: for mice, for squirrels, for bees and wasps. For other living creatures beyond ourselves.

A Quote by Marion G. Romney on conformity, discipline, facts, inspiration, knowledge, men, wisdom, and words

Not only does inspiration from the Lord compensate for want of facts; it also induces men by self-discipline, to conform in their personal conduct and in their dealings one with another to the highest standards they know. In other words, it gives men the capacity which distinguishes wisdom from knowledge.

A Quote by Maria Montessori on discipline, individuality, liberty, and silence

Discipline must come through liberty. . . . We do not consider an individual disciplined only when he has been rendered as artificially silent as a mute and as immovable as a paralytic. He is an individual annihilated, not disciplined.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on belief, day, impossibility, laughter, practice, trying, breakfast, discipline, and effort

Alice laughed.  'There's not use trying,' she said: 'one can't believe impossible things.'

'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen.  'When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day.  Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

A Quote by John William Gardner on achievement, discipline, excellence, greatness, people, purpose, and tenacity

Some people have greatness thrust upon them. Few have excellence thrust upon them. . . . They achieve it. They do not achieve it unwittingly by doing what comes naturally and they don't stumble into it in the course of amusing themselves. All excellence involves discipline and tenacity of purpose.
