Self-control

Henry Lee

Self command…is the pivot upon which the character, fame and independence of us mortals hang.

Author Unknown

If you know of a skeleton hidden away
In a closet, and guarded and kept from the day
In the dark; whose showing, whose sudden display
Would cause grief and sorrow and lifelong dismay,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

If you know of a spot in the life of a friend
(We all have spots concealed, world without end)
Whose touching his heartstrings would sadden or rend,
Till the shame of its showing no grieving could mend,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

Matthew Kelly

Character is built little by little, over days, weeks, months, and years, with thousands of small and seemingly insignificant acts of discipline.

Latin Proverb

It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.

Tom Landry, NFL Coach

Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan. The key is discipline.

Edwin Percy Whipple

Cheerfulness in most people is the rich and satisfying result of strenuous discipline.

Confucius

To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.

Frank Outlaw: Late President of the Bi-Lo Stores

Watch your thoughts, they become words; watch your words, they become actions; watch your actions, they become habits; watch your habits, they become character; watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

Oscar Wilde

Our ambition should be to rule ourselves, the true kingdom for each one of us; and true progress is to know more, and be more, and to do more.
