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 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 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.

A Quote by Charles Alexander Eastman on character, control, courage, dignity, endurance, mystery, patience, self-control, and silence

If you ask him: "What is silence?" he will answer, "It is the Great Mystery! The holy silence is His voice!" If you ask: "What are the fruits of silence?" he will say: "They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity, and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character."
