Self-Control Quotes

…these are good for not only ourselves but for those children in our homes that might need some constant reminders.  Borrowed these from a friend of mine who collects self-control quotes.


“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude
toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change
rather than allowing it to master you.” –Brian Tracy

Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more
difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment –Benjamin Franklin

“Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power.” –Seneca

“The sign of an intelligent people is their ability to control their
emotions by the application of reason.” -Mary Mannes

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no
law.” (Galatians 5:22)

What we do upon some great occasion will probably depend on what we already are; and what we are will be the result of previous years of
self-discipline –H.P. Liddon

“A person without self-control is like a city with broken down walls.”
-Proverbs 25:28

“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
–Proverbs 15: 1
