Discipline quotes by Jack Kornfield
#1. Meditation takes discipline, just like learning how to play piano. If you want to learn how to play the piano, it takes more than a few minutes a day, once a while, here and there. If you really want to learn any important skill, whether it is playing piano or meditation, it grows with perseverance, patience, and systematic training. #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Discipline quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#2. Sometimes constraints actually create success. Not being able to swim made me run. And running taught me the discipline I needed as a writer. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Discipline quotes by Kathleen Norris
#3. Poets are immersed in process, and I mean process not as an amorphous blur but as a discipline. The hard work of writing has taught me that in matters of the heart, such as writing, or faith, there is no right or wrong way to do it, but only the way of your life. Just paying attention will teach you what bears fruit and what doesn't. But it will be necessary to revise
to doodle, scratch out, erase, even make a mess of things
in order to make it come out right. #Quote by Kathleen Norris
Discipline quotes by A.E. Conran
#4. Tall, pale-skinned, and trained for warfare since childhood, the Celts were fearsome. They spiked up their hair with lime, covered their bodies in dyes or tattoos, ripped off their clothes in battle, and fought totally butt-naked, so mad on war and glory that no one could stop them. The Romans were terrified of the Celts, but they admired them too. Too bad Roman discipline won out in the end. But not tonight... tonight is going to be massive - awesome beyond awesomeness - and my Celts are going to win! #Quote by A.E. Conran
Discipline quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#5. Science, specifically the science of disease, was all delicious secrets, dark oily pockets of mystery. Language could be misinterpreted, misconstrued, its rules imposed or ignored at whim. There was no discipline to it. It seemed sometimes a sort of game made up by man to amuse himself with. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Discipline quotes by Stephen Covey
#6. Your ability to get along with others flows naturally from how well you are getting along with yourself from your own internal peace and harmony which is itself a function of your peace and harmony with God and your family. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Discipline quotes by Earl Nightingale
#7. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Discipline quotes by Aaron Copland
#8. Mozart in his music was probably the most reasonable of the world's great composers. It is the happy balance between flight and control, between sensibility and self-discipline, simplicity and sophistication of style that is his particular province ... Mozart tapped once again the source from which all music flows, expressing himself with a spontaneity and refinement and breath-taking rightness that has never since been duplicated. #Quote by Aaron Copland
Discipline quotes by Gertrude Himmelfarb
#9. The footnote would seem to be the smallest detail in a work of history. Yet it carries a large burden of responsibility, testifying to the validity of the work, the integrity (and the humility) of the historian, and to the dignity of the discipline. #Quote by Gertrude Himmelfarb
Discipline quotes by Itay Talgam
#10. If school principals have given up on the important things and are focusing on discipline, they are creating a certain, diluted reality. In an organization that functions properly, discipline should be a marginal issue. #Quote by Itay Talgam
Discipline quotes by Gilbert Ryle
#11. Philosophy is the replacement of category-habits by category-disciplines. #Quote by Gilbert Ryle
Discipline quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#12. Up in that room I decided that I would write one story about each thing that I knew about. I was trying to do this all the time I was writing, and it was good and severe discipline. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Discipline quotes by Albert Hadley
#13. Design is about discipline and reality, not about fantasy beyond reality #Quote by Albert Hadley
Discipline quotes by Peter M. Senge
#14. The practice of shared vision involves the skills of unearthing shared "pictures of the future" that foster genuine commitment and enrollment rather than compliance. In mastering this discipline, leaders learn the counterproductiveness of trying to dictate a vision, no matter how heartfelt. #Quote by Peter M. Senge
Discipline quotes by Alexander Elder
#15. Traders lose because the game is hard, or out of ignorance, or lack of discipline or because of both. #Quote by Alexander Elder
Discipline quotes by Simone Biles
#16. I was glad to put the whole thing behind me, because I wanted every child, regardless of race, to be able to look at my Worlds win and say, I can dream big too. I wanted them to know that following your dreams - not just in gymnastics, but in everything - shouldn't have anything to do with the color of your skin. It should only be about finding the discipline and the courage to do the hard work. #Quote by Simone Biles
Discipline quotes by Charles Koch
#17. I learned that unless you start working, if you're frozen out of work, you will never learn the habits, the discipline, the values of cooperation and improvement unless you get a job, and that's what statistic show. It's, unless you get a job and keep it, you will not get out of poverty. If you do, you have a very good chance of working out of poverty. #Quote by Charles Koch
Discipline quotes by J.I. Packer
#18. To summarize, then, it appears that Christian holiness is a number of things together. It has both outward and inward aspects. Holiness is a matter of both action and motivation, conduct and character, divine grace and human effort, obedience and creativity, submission and initiative, consecration to God and commitment to people, self-discipline and self-giving, righteousness and love. It is a matter of Spirit-led law-keeping, a walk, or course of life, in the Spirit that displays the fruit of the Spirit (Christlikeness of attitude and disposition). It is a matter of seeking to imitate Jesus' way of behaving, through depending on Jesus for deliverance from carnal self-absorption and for discernment of spiritual needs and possibilities. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Discipline quotes by Anonymous
#19. For the rest, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever modest, whatsoever just, whatsoever holy, whatsoever lovely, whatsoever of good fame, if there be any virtue, if any praise of discipline: think on these things. #Quote by Anonymous
Discipline quotes by Tedd Tripp
#20. All behavior is linked to attitudes of the heart. Therefore, discipline must address attitudes of the heart. #Quote by Tedd Tripp
Discipline quotes by James Jones
#21. The quickest, efficient, least expensive way to educate a man is to make it painful for him when he is wrong, the same as with any other animal. #Quote by James Jones
Discipline quotes by Robin Sloan
#22. Ometimes discipline is the truest form of kindness. #Quote by Robin Sloan
Discipline quotes by Oswald Chambers
#23. Speak, Lord"; make time to listen. Chastening is more than a means of discipline, it is meant to get me to the place of saying, "Speak, Lord." #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Discipline quotes by William Glasser
#24. To focus on discipline is to ignore the real problem: We will never be able to get students (or anyone else) to be in good order if, day after day, we try to force them to do what they do not find satisfying. #Quote by William Glasser
Discipline quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#25. Scientists have power by virtue of the respect commanded by the discipline ... We live with poets and politicians, preachers and philosophers. All have their ways of knowing, and all are valid in their proper domain. The world is too complex and interesting for one way to hold all the answers. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Discipline quotes by M. Scott Peck
#26. Spiritually evolved people, by virtue of their discipline, mastery and love, are people of extraordinary competence, and in their competence they are called on to serve the world, and in their love they answer the call. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Discipline quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#27. I should not mistake her calm probing for the absence of anger. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Discipline quotes by Pema Chodron
#28. When people start to meditate or to work with any kind of spiritual discipline, they often think that somehow they're going to improve, which is a sort of subtle aggression against who they really are. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Discipline quotes by John Le Carre
#29. The greatest crime is to do nothing because we can only do a little ( ... ) I feel nothing, because feeling is subversive and contrary to military discipline. Therefore I do not feel, but I fight and therefore I exist. (part I, chapter 10) #Quote by John Le Carre
Discipline quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#30. And with a practice of writing comes a certain important integrity. A culture filled with bloggers thinks differently about politics or public affairs, if only because more have been forced through the discipline of showing in writing why A leads to B. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Discipline quotes by Dan John
#31. Make yourself a slave to good habits #Quote by Dan John
Discipline quotes by Sun Tzu
#32. By method and discipline are to be understood the marshaling of the army in its proper subdivisions, the graduations of rank among the officers, the maintenance of roads by which supplies may reach the army, and the control of military expenditure. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Discipline quotes by Etta James
#33. Jazz took too much discipline. You have to come in at the right place, which is different than me singing the blues, where I can sing, 'Oh, baby,' if there's a pause in the melody. With jazz, you better leave that space open, or put in something real cool. #Quote by Etta James
Discipline quotes by Steven Johnson
#34. How could so many intelligent people be so grievously wrong for such an extended period of time? How could they ignore so much overwhelming evidence that contradicted their most basic theories? These questions, too, deserve their own discipline: the sociology of error. #Quote by Steven Johnson
Discipline quotes by Dirk Benedict
#35. From Fred Astaire I learned discipline and hard work. #Quote by Dirk Benedict
Discipline quotes by Edith Wharton
#36. To read is not a virtue; but to read well is an art, and an art that only the born reader can acquire. The gift of reading is no exception to the rule that all natural gifts need to be cultivated by practice and discipline; but unless the innate aptitude exist the training will be wasted. It is the delusion of the mechanical reader to think that intentions may take the place of aptitude. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Discipline quotes by Lawren Harris
#37. No man can roan or inhabit the Canadian North without it affecting him, and the artist, because of his constant habit of awareness and his discipline in expression, is perhaps more understanding of its moods and spirit than others are. He is thus better equipped to interpret it to others, and then, when her has become one with its spirit, to create living works in their own right, by using forms, colors, rhythms and moods, to make a harmonious home for the imaginative and spiritual meaning it has evoked in him. #Quote by Lawren Harris
Discipline quotes by Guru Nanak
#38. Build the raft of meditation and self-discipline, to carry you across the river. There will be no ocean, and no rising tides to stop you; this is how comfortable your path shall be ... #Quote by Guru Nanak
Discipline quotes by Stephen Colbert
#39. And my daughter said, 'Why are you yelling at us?' and I said, 'I'm trying to discipline you!' And then she looked up at me with her tear-stained eyes and said, 'This is how you teach children, by making them cry.' And it was such a clenching reminder - she won not only the argument, but she won life with that statement. I just burst out laughing, and I think they were so surprised that I burst out laughing, that they did too. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Discipline quotes by Jack D. Schwager
#40. Being a successful investor & winning in the stock market is a matter of skill & discipline and not luck alone #Quote by Jack D. Schwager
Discipline quotes by Ron Ben-Israel
#41. Repetitiveness and discipline are the secrets of cake decorating. The art comes from the meticulous technique, the way it does for a dancer. #Quote by Ron Ben-Israel
Discipline quotes by Lisa A. Mininni
#42. Affirmation without discipline is like enthusiasm without direction. #Quote by Lisa A. Mininni
Discipline quotes by Billy Graham
#43. Let us always remember that Christ calls men and women not only to trust Him as Savior, but also to follow Him as Lord. That call to discipleship must be part of our message if we are to be faithful to Him. #Quote by Billy Graham
Discipline quotes by Manoshi Bhattacharya
#44. The Bengali tends to run to brains rather than brawn and does not take kindly to the discipline and order of a hard life; at the same time, he lacks neither courage nor ability, and shines in the higher ranks."

Sir Charles Tegart #Quote by Manoshi Bhattacharya
Discipline quotes by Lee Strobel
#45. Only by facing my sin could God use it to change me for the better. The Bible warns that God's discipline isn't pleasant, but in the end the changes God produces in our character are worth it. #Quote by Lee Strobel
Discipline quotes by Rajneesh
#46. Everybody is born with the capacity to enjoy, but not with the art. People think just because they are alive and they breathe and they exist, they know how to enjoy. That is sheer stupidity. Enjoyment is a great art, it is a great discipline. It is as subtle a discipline as music or poetry or painting. It is the greatest creativity. #Quote by Rajneesh
Discipline quotes by Stewart Brand
#47. Certain knowledge of what to fight for, and what to fight against, gives meaning to life and provides its own version of discipline: never give up. That kind of meaning is illusory, I now believe, and blinkered. Fealty to a mystical absolute is a formula for disaster, especially in transformative times. #Quote by Stewart Brand
Discipline quotes by Lazare Carnot
#48. The General Order is always:
... To manoeuver in a body and on the attack.
... To maintain strict but not pettifogging discipline.
... To keep the troops constantly at the ready.
... To employ the utmost vigilance on sentry go.
... To use the bayonet on every possible occasion.
And to follow up the enemy remorselessly until he is utterly destroyed. #Quote by Lazare Carnot
Discipline quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#49. For sound advice is a beacon, good teaching is a light, moral discipline is a life path. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Discipline quotes by Barney Frank
#50. If Bob Barr (conservative republican congressman from Georgia) caught on fire and I was holding a bucket of water, it would be great act of discipline to pour it on him. I would do it, but I'd hate myself in the morning. #Quote by Barney Frank
Discipline quotes by John F. Kennedy
#51. Too often in the past, we have thought of the artist as an idler and dilettante and of the lover of arts as somehow sissy and effete. We have done both an injustice. The life of the artist is, in relation to his work, stern and lonely. He has labored hard, often amid deprivation, to perfect his skill. He has turned aside from quick success in order to strip his vision of everything secondary or cheapening. His working life is marked by intense application and intense discipline. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Discipline quotes by Gautama Buddha
#52. The easiest beneficence is a smile. The simplest release is to have a vegetarian meal. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Discipline quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#53. To discipline ourselves through fasting brings us in tune with God, and fast day provides an occasion to set aside the temporal so that we might enjoy the higher qualities of the spiritual. As we fast on that day we learn and better understand the needs of those who are less fortunate. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Discipline quotes by Alvin R. Dyer
#54. What I believe ... about more sleep than is needful concerns the individual who goes far beyond the need, developing slothful and lazy habits, which deaden the senses and become a retarder of accomplishment. To overcome these things in life requires discipline and restraint. #Quote by Alvin R. Dyer
Discipline quotes by Chris Liddell
#55. What you learn at university is a good discipline but has little relevance to a real job. #Quote by Chris Liddell
Discipline quotes by Robert M. Gates
#56. Self-discipline is central to the leadership of institutions and to reforming them. A favorite saying of mine is "Never miss a good chance to shut up." I won't tell you how many times in a congressional hearing I just wanted to scream. How often in the White House Situation Room I wanted to say, "That's the dumbest idea I ever heard." How often in a briefing at the CIA or the Pentagon I wanted to tell someone where to stick his PowerPoint slides. Senior leaders want to blow off steam-shout at people- all the time. But to be an effective leader, you have to suppress those urges. #Quote by Robert M. Gates
Discipline quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#57. Only through freely chosen discipline can life be enjoyed, and still kept within the bounds of reason. If a person learns to control his instinctual desires, not because he has to, but because he wants to, he can enjoy himself without becoming addicted. A #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Discipline quotes by Max Barry
#58. All empires fall, eventually."
"But why? It's not for lack of power. In fact, it seems to be the opposite. Their power lulls them into comfort. They become undisciplined. Those who had to earn power are replaced by those who have known nothing else. Who have no comprehension of the need to rise above base desires.["] #Quote by Max Barry
Discipline quotes by Merce Cunningham
#59. The most essential thing in dance discipline is devotion, the steadfast and willing devotion to the labor that makes the classwork not a gymnastic hour and a half, or at the lowest level, a daily drudgery, but a devotion that allows the classroom discipline to become moments of dancing too ... #Quote by Merce Cunningham
Discipline quotes by David Powning
#60. Discipline has enemies, and one of them is you. #Quote by David Powning
Discipline quotes by Tom Wilson
#61. About the only time losing is more fun than winning is when you're fighting temptation. #Quote by Tom Wilson
Discipline quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#62. Creator of indifferences" is the motto I want for my spirit today. I'd like my life's activity to consist, above all, in educating others to feel more and more for themselves, and less and less according to the dynamic low of collectiveness. To educate people in that spiritual antisepsis which precludes contamination by commonness and vulgarity is the loftiest destiny I can imagine for the pedagogue of inner discipline that I aspire to be. If all who read me would learn – slowly, of course, as the subject matter requires – to be completely insensitive to the other people's opinions and even their glances, that would be enough of a garland to make up for my life's scholastic stagnation. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Discipline quotes by J. Loren Norris
#63. So, what does it take to live a more excellent life? It takes a new way of thinking, speaking and acting. It takes a change in habits, and a better understanding of who you are and what you do each day. It takes a foolproof formula you can apply to every minute of your day, for the most excellent outcome every time. #Quote by J. Loren Norris
Discipline quotes by Jason Graae
#64. I'm a prostitute. Do you know what, it really is basically I just really like to work! I'm thrilled that there's a variety. It's why I got into this business to begin with, because I really don't have the discipline or intellect to have a 9-to-5 job. But I came from a classical music background and I merged that to theatre, it kind of opened up the door to a lot of different possibilities. #Quote by Jason Graae
Discipline quotes by Richard Cecil
#65. Self-will so ardent and active that it will break a world to pieces to make a stool to sit on. #Quote by Richard Cecil
Discipline quotes by Martha Graham
#66. Freedom to a dancer means discipline. That is what technique is for
liberation. #Quote by Martha Graham
Discipline quotes by Augustus William Hare
#67. Who is fit to govern others? He who governs himself. You might as well have said: nobody. #Quote by Augustus William Hare
Discipline quotes by John F. Kennedy
#68. I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country's peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of "clear and present danger," the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public's need for national security. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Discipline quotes by Pedro Okoro
#69. Purpose gives rise to discipline, restraint, and self-control, which are crucial, fundamental tools for success in the journey of life. #Quote by Pedro Okoro
Discipline quotes by Steven Norton
#70. The general consensus seemed to be that if prayer didn't take care of the problem, a belt to the ass and the threat of reform school would. #Quote by Steven Norton
Discipline quotes by Orson F. Whitney
#71. Education, human education, is the leading out and lifting up of the soul into the ripe, full enjoyment of all its powes potential. To educate men and women is to put them in full command of themselves, to completely possess them of their faculties, which are only half possessed until they are educated. Education imparts nothing but discipline and development. It does not increase the number of man's original talents; it adds nothing to the sum of his inherent capabilities; but it improves those talents, it develops and strengthens those capabilities, brightening what is dull, making the crude fine, the clumsy skillful, the small great, and the great still greater. Education supplements creation, and moves next to it in the order of infinite progression. #Quote by Orson F. Whitney
Discipline quotes by Samuel Alito
#72. I learned that hard work and self-discipline can overcome many obstacles. #Quote by Samuel Alito
Discipline quotes by Albert Hadley
#73. Flair is a primitive kind of style. It is innate and cannot be taught. It can be polished and refined. When a person has flair, a grounding in the principle of design, and self-discipline, that person has the potential of being an outstanding designer. #Quote by Albert Hadley
Discipline quotes by Alain Badiou
#74. I would say, if you like, that the party is like an out-moded mathematics ... that is to say, the mathematics of Euclid. We need to invent a non-Euclidian mathematics with respect to political discipline. #Quote by Alain Badiou
Discipline quotes by Kent Ingle
#75. Discipline is "the systematic management of your life to prepare and position you for your divine design." Discipline and stewardship are one and the same. Discipline brings order to life and is absolutely required if we're going to be good stewards of the call to leadership. #Quote by Kent Ingle
Discipline quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#76. As she put it, she knew of nothing so ravishing as having a child whom she could whip whenever she was in a bad mood.
("The Queen Fantasque") #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Discipline quotes by Sri Amma Bhagwan.
#77. Rebuilding relationship requires a lifelong discipline and commitment. #Quote by Sri Amma Bhagwan.
Discipline quotes by Don Meyer
#78. Discipline and demand without being demeaning. #Quote by Don Meyer
Discipline quotes by Abraham Verghese
#79. I was temperamentally better suited to a cognitive discipline, to an introspective field - internal medicine, or perhaps psychiatry. The sight of the operating theater made me sweat. The idea of holding a scalpel caused coils to form in my belly. (It still does.) Surgery was the most difficult thing I could imagine.
And so I became a surgeon. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Discipline quotes by Quentin Bryce
#80. When a woman is fit and healthy, everything else falls into place. We are conditioned to put others first, that 'burnt chop syndrome' we observed in our mothers. It takes discipline to pay attention to our diets, to exercise, to leave time for refreshment of mind, body and spirit. #Quote by Quentin Bryce
Discipline quotes by Sam Altman
#81. That culture of frugality and discipline is really important for the Y Combinator mindset. #Quote by Sam Altman
Discipline quotes by Victor Hugo
#82. Formerly these harsh cells in which the discipline of the prison leaves the condemned to himself were composed of four stone walls, a ceiling of stone, a pavement of tiles, a camp bed, a grated air-hole, a double iron door, and were called "dungeons" ; but the dungeon has been thought too horrible; now it is composed ofan iron door, a grated air-hole, a camp bed, a pavement of tiles, a ceiling of stone, four stone walls, and it is called "punishment cell. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Discipline quotes by Robert Bly
#83. In ordinary life, a mentor can guide a young man through various disciplines, helping to bring him out of boyhood into manhood; and that in turn is associated not with body building, but with building and emotional body capable of containing more than one sort of ecstasy. #Quote by Robert Bly
Discipline quotes by Jesse Owens
#84. In the end, it's extra effort that separates a winner from second place. But winning takes a lot more that that, too. It starts with complete command of the fundamentals. Then it takes desire, determination, discipline, and self-sacrifice. And finally, it takes a great deal of love, fairness and respect for your fellow man. Put all these together, and even if you don't win, how can you lose? #Quote by Jesse Owens
Discipline quotes by Alaric Hutchinson
#85. It is often the simple daily practices that influence our lives in dramatic ways. #Quote by Alaric Hutchinson
Discipline quotes by Donald S. Whitney
#86. I've seen Christians who are faithful to the church of God, who frequently demonstrate genuine enthusiasm for the things of God, and who are committed to the preaching of the Word of God, yet who trivialize their effectiveness for the kingdom of God through lack of discipline. #Quote by Donald S. Whitney
Discipline quotes by Jim Rohn
#87. Success simple disciplines, practiced every day, while failure a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. Choose to succeed. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Discipline quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#88. Forgiveness allows us to develop self-discipline and helps us to let go of toxic attachments to people, places, materials things, or even ourselves. It helps us to inherit and visualize how to focus on the effort. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Discipline quotes by Missionaries Who Love The Arab World
#89. Discipline leads us to desire, which matures into delight. #Quote by Missionaries Who Love The Arab World
Discipline quotes by Yukio Mishima
#90. At no time are we ever in such complete possession of a journey, down to its last nook and cranny, as when we are busy with preparations for it. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Discipline quotes by Neil Patrick Harris
#91. The discipline of live theater - doing the same perfect thing night after night, eight times a week - never ceases to amaze me #Quote by Neil Patrick Harris
Discipline quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#92. Violence or the threat of violence [must] never be permitted to influence the actions or judgments of the university community. Once it does, the community, almost by definition, ceases to be a university. It is for this reason that from time immemorial expulsion has been the primary instrument of university discipline. #Quote by Richard M. Nixon
Discipline quotes by Barbara Coloroso
#93. When we use punishment, our children are robbed of the opportunity to develop their own inner discipline-the ability to act with integrity, wisdom, compassion, and mercy when there is no external force holding them accountable for what they do. #Quote by Barbara Coloroso
Discipline quotes by Dean Koontz
#94. Like children, dogs want discipline and are most secure when they have rules to live by. The happiest dogs are those with gentle masters who quietly but firmly demand respect. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Discipline quotes by William Lyon Mackenzie King
#95. Self-denial and self-discipline, however, will be recognized as the outstanding qualities of a good soldier. #Quote by William Lyon Mackenzie King
Discipline quotes by Anonymous
#96. Fill your mind with all peaceful experiences possible, then make planned and deliberate excursions to them in memory. You must learn that the easiest way to an easy mind is to create an easy mind. This is done by practice, by the application of some such simple principles as outlined here. The mind quickly responds to teaching and discipline. #Quote by Anonymous
Discipline quotes by John Piper
#97. The rich fruit of spontaneity grows in the garden that is well tended by the discipline of schedule. #Quote by John Piper
Discipline quotes by Jeremy Grantham
#98. Market timing, by the way, is a tag some buy-and-hold investors use to put down anything that involves using your brain. These are the same people who like to watch the locomotive coming and get run down in the name of discipline. #Quote by Jeremy Grantham
Discipline quotes by Money Tree Man

Discipline quotes by Joseph J. Ellis

Discipline quotes by Linda Ronstadt

Discipline quotes by Adyashanti
#108. If you strip it of all the complex terminology and all the complex jargon, enlightenment is simply returning to our natural state of being. A natural state, of course, means a state which is not contrived, a state that requires no effort or discipline to maintain, a state of being which is not enhanced by any sort of manipulation of mind or body - in other words, a state that is completely natural, completely spontaneous. #Quote by Adyashanti
Discipline quotes by Peter J. Boettke
#109. Economists came along after the existence of the phenomena they try to understand. In other words, economists emerged in a philosophic effort to understand an already existing practice. This point has broad implications for the nature of the discipline, even though we do not usually address then in introductory courses. #Quote by Peter J. Boettke

Discipline quotes by John Burnside
#111. As a lifetime proposition, happiness is a discipline, no doubt; but for moments at a time, it's a piece of luck. A piece of luck and a clue: a hint, not just of what might be, but of what already exists, in the heart of a man's heart ... #Quote by John Burnside
Discipline quotes by John Dewey
#112. A person who is trained to consider his actions, to undertake them deliberately, is in so far forth disciplined. Add to this ability a power to endure in an intelligently chosen course in the face of distraction, confusion, and difficulty, and you have the essence of discipline. #Quote by John Dewey
Discipline quotes by Peter Kreeft
#113. For the wise men of old, the cardinal problem of human life was how to conform the soul to objective reality, and the solution was wisdom, self-discipline, and virtue. For the modern, the cardinal problem is how to conform reality to the wishes of man, and the solution is a technique. #Quote by Peter Kreeft
Discipline quotes by Charlie Munger
#114. You must know the big ideas in the big disciplines, and use them routinely - all of them, not just a few. Most people are trained in one model - economics, for example - and try to solve all problems in one way. You know the old saying: to the man with a hammer, the world looks like a nail. This is a dumb way of handling problems. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Discipline quotes by Donald Miller
#115. I used to write when I was in the mood or felt inspired. Anymore, I write whether I feel inspired or not. It's a discipline. So that's definitely different. It's part of maturing as a person and as a professional. #Quote by Donald Miller
Discipline quotes by Arthur Lydiard
#116. It's just a matter of understanding what's necessary and discipline yourself to do it. #Quote by Arthur Lydiard

Discipline quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#119. The confession of evil works is the first beginning of good works. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Discipline quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
#120. Because I grew up with a drill sergeant in my life, I respect order and it really gave me the discipline to be a leader and not a follower. It also helped me stay out of trouble. #Quote by Shaquille O'Neal
Discipline quotes by The Invisible Committee
#121. The past has given us much too many bad answers for us not to see that the mistakes were in the questions themselves. There is no need to choose between the fetishism of spontaneity and the organization control; between the "come one, come all" of activist networks and the discipline of hierarchy; between acting desperately now and waiting desperately for later; between bracketing that which is to be lived and experimented in the name of paradise that seems more and more like a hell the longer it is put off and flogging the dead horse of how planting carrots is enough to leave this nightmare. #Quote by The Invisible Committee
Discipline quotes by George R R Martin
#122. When soldiers lack discipline, the fault lies with their lord commander. #Quote by George R R Martin
Discipline quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#123. Desires to which we cling closely can easily prevent us from being what we ought to be and can be; and on the other hand, desires repeatedly mastered for the sake of present duty make us richer.Lack of desire is poverty. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Discipline quotes by Augusto Pinochet
#124. During 65 years, I have walked the path of duty and discipline ... And today, looking back at that long path of service, my soldier's heart stirs and murmurs from deep within: Thank you. Thank you, my homeland. #Quote by Augusto Pinochet
Discipline quotes by Dan Fogelberg
#125. He earned his love through discipline, a thundering velvet hand, his gentle means of sculpting souls took me years to understand. #Quote by Dan Fogelberg
Discipline quotes by Harry Browne
#126. Everything you want in life has a price connected to it. There's a price to pay if you want to make things better, a price to pay just for leaving things as they are, a price for everything. #Quote by Harry Browne
Discipline quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#127. To teach someone a lesson, show them how it's done. Force is a temporary solution. Judgment is no solution at all. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Discipline quotes by Peter Lynch
#128. The trick is not to learn to trust your gut feelings, but rather to discipline yourself to ignore them. Stand by your stocks as long as the fundamental story of the company hasn't changed. #Quote by Peter Lynch
Discipline quotes by James C. Collins
#129. A culture of discipline is not a principle of business, it is a principle of greatness. #Quote by James C. Collins
Discipline quotes by Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor
#130. In my perfect imagination, with stern discipline I rise with the first bird, salute the dawn, have a healthy breakfast of fruits, wander over to my faux-oak desk, tap the On button on my Macbook Air, acknowledge the muse, and skip into the world where the story flows over the day and into the night. #Quote by Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor
Discipline quotes by Jerry Bridges
#131. Pharisee-type believers unconsciously think they've earned God's blessing through their behavior. Guilt-laden believers are sure they've forfeited God's blessing through disobedience or lack of discipline. Both have forgotten the meaning of grace - God's unmerited favor to those who deserve only His wrath. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Discipline quotes by B.C. Chase
#132. The human heart is evil, absolutely. That is why self-discipline is a virtue. Once you open the floodgates of corruption, there's no stopping it. #Quote by B.C. Chase
Discipline quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#133. I look upon parliamentary government as the noblest government in the world, and certainly one most suited to England. But without the discipline of political connection, animated by the principle of private honor, I feel certain that a popular assembly would sink before the power or the corruption of a minister. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Discipline quotes by Simon Kuznets
#134. When, over fifty years ago, I first became interested in economics - as a discipline that provided the key to social structure and social problems - it never crossed my mind that one day I might be the honored recipient of a Nobel Memorial Prize. #Quote by Simon Kuznets
Discipline quotes by Florence Nightingale
#135. Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it. Far the greatest things grow by God's law out of the smallest. But to live your life, you must discipline it. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Discipline quotes by Gautama Buddha
#136. There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind, and there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Discipline quotes by Sarah Bird
#137. I guess that's what my dad did. Stopped agreeing with reality. I could do it for as long as it took me to get from my classroom to the office. He managed it for sixteen years. He must have had more mental discipline than me. Or maybe it wasn't that much of an effort to pretend that I didn't exist. #Quote by Sarah Bird
Discipline quotes by Terryl L. Givens
#138. The secret of happiness is this: let your interests be as wide as possible," he said. He then made his point with the simple example of a taste for strawberries. "There is no abstract and impersonal proof either that strawberries are good or that they are not good. To the man who likes them they are good, to the man who dislikes them they are not. But the man who likes them has a pleasure which the other does not have; to that extent his life is more enjoyable and he is better adapted to the world in which both must live ... The more things a man is interested in, the more opportunities of happiness he has. #Quote by Terryl L. Givens
Discipline quotes by Gerry Lindgren
#139. COURAGE is not a quality you teach. Courage is the by-product of self-discipline. It is an ATTITUDE. #Quote by Gerry Lindgren
Discipline quotes by George Lakoff
#140. Therefore, we all start out morally weak, that is, with an overwhelming tendency to do immoral things. Unless our parents intervene to discipline us, we will naturally become immoral. This #Quote by George Lakoff
Discipline quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#141. No wonder that tantra is so popular today in the West: it offers the ultimate "spiritual logic of late capitalism" uniting spirituality and earthly pleasures, transcendence and material benefits, divine experience and unlimited shopping. It propagates the permanent transgression of all rules, the violation of all taboos, instant gratification as the path to enlightenment; it overcomes old-fashioned "binary" thought, the dualism of mind and body, in claiming that the body at its most material (the site of sex and lust) is the royal path to spiritual awakening. Bliss comes from "saying yes" to all bodily needs, not from denying them: spiritual perfection comes from the insight that we already are divine and perfect, not that we have to achieve this through effort and discipline. The body is not something to be cultivated or crafted into an expression of spiritual truths, rather it is immediately the "temple for expressing divinity. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Discipline quotes by Jack Ramsay
#142. Even the greatest players accept coaching and value the need for discipline and the order that it brings to the team #Quote by Jack Ramsay
Discipline quotes by Joe Mehl
#143. Never think tolerance and patience as a sign of fear or weakness. This is true sign of a person with strength, attitude of discipline and self-control. Wins every time. #Quote by Joe Mehl
Discipline quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#144. The Chinese, as befits a Communist autocracy, approached the task of dominating the Olympics with top-down military discipline. #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
Discipline quotes by Eiji Yoshikawa
#145. I want to dedicate myself to training and discipline. I want to spend every moment of every day working to improve myself. #Quote by Eiji Yoshikawa
Discipline quotes by John C. Maxwell
#146. Integrity is not a given factor in everyone's life. It is a result of self-discipline, inner trust, and a decision to be relentlessly honest in all situations in our lives. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Discipline quotes by Henry Miller
#147. The creative life! Ascension. Passing beyond oneself. Rocketing out into the blue, grasping at flying ladders, mounting, soaring, lifting the world up by the scalp, rousing the angels from their ethereal lairs, drowning in stellar depths, clinging to the tails of comets. Nietzsche had written of it ecstatically - and then swooned forward into the mirror to die in root and flower. «Stairs and contradictory stairs,» he wrote, and then suddenly there was no longer any bottom; the mind, like a splintered diamond, was pulverized by the hammer−blows of truth. There was a time when I acted as my father's keeper. I was left alone for long hours, cooped up in the little booth which we used as an office. While he was drinking with his cronies I was feeding from the bottle of creative life. My companions were the free spirits, the overlords of the soul. The young man sitting there in the mingy yellow light became completely unhinged; he lived in the crevices of great thoughts, crouched like a hermit in the barren folds of a lofty mountain range. From truth he passed to imagination and from imagination to invention. At this last portal, through which there is no return, fear beset him. To venture farther was to wander alone, to rely wholly upon oneself. The purpose of discipline is to promote freedom. But freedom leads to infinity and infinity is terrifying. Then arose the comforting thought of stopping at the brink, of setting down in words the mysteries of impulsion, compulsion, propu #Quote by Henry Miller
Discipline quotes by Jim Rohn
#148. So, before you are tempted to give up or get
discouraged, remember all success is based on long term commitment, faith, discipline, attitude and a few stepping stones along the way. You might not like the stone you are on right now, but it's sure to be one of the stones that lead to great opportunities in the future. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Discipline quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#149. I don't know which is worse - to have a bad teacher or no teacher at all. In any case, I believe the teacher's work should be largely negative. He can't put the gift into you, but if he finds it there, he can try to keep it from going in an obviously wrong direction. We can learn how not to write, but this is a discipline that does not simply concern writing itself but concerns the whole intellectual life. A mind cleared of false emotion and false sentiment and egocentricity is going to have at least those roadblocks removed from its path. If you don't think cheaply, then there at least won't be the quality of cheapness in your writing, even though you may not be able to write well. The teacher can try to weed out what is positively bad, and this should be the aim of the whole college. Any discipline can help your writing: logic, mathematics, theology, and of course and particularly drawing. Anything that helps you to see, anything that makes you look. The writer should never be ashamed of staring. There is nothing that doesn't require his attention. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Discipline quotes by Jean Cocteau
#150. Poetry is an ethic. By ethic I mean a secret code of behavior, a discipline constructed and conducted according to the capabilities of a man who rejects the falsifications of the categorical imperative. #Quote by Jean Cocteau
Discipline quotes by Robert Fripp

Discipline quotes by Bruce Coville
#153. You need them both, Thatcher. Talent and discipline. One without the other is useless. #Quote by Bruce Coville
Discipline quotes by Edward Gibbon
#154. It was an inflexible maxim of Roman discipline that good soldier should dread his own officers far more than the enemy #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Discipline quotes by Robert J. Wicks
#155. Critical thinking helps us to more clearly understand situations, patients, colleagues, and our agendas, negative emotions, attitudes, motivations, talents, and growing edges. This not only helps us to have a greater grasp of reality but also stops the drain of psychological energy that is necessary to be defensive or to protect our image. Because critical thinking is not natural, although we may think it is for us, it takes discipline, a willingness to face the unpleasant, and a stamina that allows one not to become unduly frustrated when we do not achieve results as quickly as we prefer with respect to our insights and growth. #Quote by Robert J. Wicks
Discipline quotes by Barry Schwartz
#156. I believe there are steps we can take to mitigate - even eliminate - many of these sources of distress, but they aren't easy. They require practice, discipline, and perhaps a new way of thinking. On the other hand, each of these steps will bring its own rewards. #Quote by Barry Schwartz
Discipline quotes by Michael J. Fox
#157. If I were overweight because I ate too much, I would have far more of a complex. I would know if I just stopped eating and showed a little discipline I would be thin. But there's not a hell of a lot I can do about being short. You just gotta run with it. #Quote by Michael J. Fox
Discipline quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#158. No method nor discipline can supersede the necessity of being forever on the alert. What is a course of history, or philosophy, or poetry, or the most admirable routine of life, compared with the discipline of looking always at what is to be seen? Will you be a reader, a student merely, or a seer? #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Discipline quotes by Donald S. Whitney
#159. And in my own pastoral and personal Christian experience, I can say that I've never known a man or woman who came to spiritual maturity except through discipline. Godliness comes through discipline. #Quote by Donald S. Whitney
Discipline quotes by Walter Isaacson
#160. Coming back to America was, for me, much more of a cultural shock than going to India. The people in the Indian countryside don't use their intellect like we do, they use their intuition instead, and their intuition is far more developed than in the rest of the world. Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect, in my opinion.
Western rational thought is not an innate human characteristic; it is learned and is the great achievement of Western civilization. In the villages of India, they never learned it. They learned something else, which is in some ways just as valuable but in other ways is not. That's the power of intuition and experiential wisdom.
Coming back after seven months in Indian villages, I saw the craziness of the Western world as well as its capacity for rational thought. If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there's room to hear more subtle things - that's when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It's a discipline; you have to practice it."
- Steve Jobs #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Discipline quotes by Michael Johnson
#161. As strong as my legs are, it is my mind that has made me a champion. #Quote by Michael Johnson
Discipline quotes by Larry Hagman
#162. I went to a military school between the ages of six and 12 and later into the air force. You learn discipline and strength of character. #Quote by Larry Hagman
Discipline quotes by Susanne Katherina Langer
#163. In human life, art may arise from almost any activity, and once it does so, it is launched on a long road of exploration, invention, freedom to the limits of extravagance, interference to the point of frustration, finally discipline, controlling constant change and growth. #Quote by Susanne Katherina Langer
Discipline quotes by Donatella Versace
#164. In order to be responsible, you need some discipline in your life. For a while I lost mine. #Quote by Donatella Versace
Discipline quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#165. Thus, discipline is the creation of boundaries that keep time and space open for God. Solitude requires discipline, worship requires discipline, caring for others requires discipline. They all ask us to set apart a time and a place where God's gracious presence can be acknowledged and responded to. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Discipline quotes by Robert Greene
#166. I hate the way war is seen as something inherently brutal and ugly. Yes, much of war brings out the worst part of our [people's] nature. But in war, all kinds of noble human traits have been developed, such as discipline, cohesion, pride. #Quote by Robert Greene
Discipline quotes by Alan Turing
#167. A man provided with paper, pencil, and rubber, and subject to strict discipline, is in effect a universal machine. #Quote by Alan Turing
Discipline quotes by Patricia Ireland
#168. When I hear traditional family values raised, I hear that effort once again to re-establish the man as head and master of his family. Who had the, not only the right, but the obligation to discipline his wife and children to keep them in line? #Quote by Patricia Ireland
Discipline quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar

Discipline quotes by Bret Lott
#170. It would be inaccurate, however, to say that my childhood was untroubled. The normal fears and worries of every child were in me developed to a high degree; every day was an awesome prospect. I was uneasy about practically everything: the uncertainty of the future, the dark of the attic, the panoply and discipline of school, the transitoriness of life, the mystery of the church and of God, the frailty of the body, the sadness of afternoon, the shadow of sex, the distant challenge of love and marriage, the far-off problem of a livelihood. #Quote by Bret Lott

Discipline quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#173. Human labor, in general, is still divided into two exclusive categories: the first - solely intellectual and managerial - includes the scientists, artists, engineers, inventors, accountants, educators, governmental officials, and their subordinate elites who enforce labor discipline The second group consists of the great mass of workers, people prevented from applying creative ideas or intelligence, who blindly and mechanically carry out the orders of the intellectual-managerial elite This economic and social division of labor has disastrous consequences for members of the privileged classes, the masses of the people, and for the prosperity, as well as the moral and intellectual development, of society as a whole. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Discipline quotes by Shunryu Suzuki

Discipline quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#176. An intense temperament has convinced me to teach not only from books but from what I have learned from experience. So I try to impress upon young doctors and graduate students that tumultuousness, if coupled to discipline and a cool mind, is not such a bad sort of thing. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Discipline quotes by Max Pam
#177. I set a discipline for myself to return every afternoon and take photographs like Edward Weston: f22, full sun, big set squares, big circles. I would smoke a joint with some hippies on the grass, then go do some more pictures. #Quote by Max Pam
Discipline quotes by Bobby Bowden

Discipline quotes by William Sadler
#181. In theater, there's a lot of discipline involved in doing eight shows a week for a year and a half. It's nice to be able to bring some of that bag of tools with you over to the film world, where you don't have the rehearsal, you don't have an audience. You don't have a month of rehearsal to examine these words, and you meet the guy who's going to play your brother the morning that you shoot the scene. So you need a bag of tools. #Quote by William Sadler
Discipline quotes by Osho
#182. I am not against rules, but the rules should arise out of your understanding. They should not be imposed from the outside. I am not against discipline! but discipline should not be slavery. All true discipline is self-discipline. And self-discipline is never against freedom - in fact, it is the ladder to freedom. Only disciplined people become free, but their discipline is not obedience to others: their discipline is obedience to their own inner voice. And they are ready to risk anything for it. Let your own awareness decide your lifestyle, life pattern. Don't allow anybody else to decide it. That is a sin, to allow anybody else to decide it. Why is it a sin? Because you will never be in your life. It will remain superficial, it will be hypocrisy. #Quote by Osho
Discipline quotes by Ellen G. White
#183. Those who are quieting a guilty conscience with the thought that they can change a course of evil when they choose, that they can trifle with the invitations of mercy, and yet be again and again impressed, take this course at their peril. They think that after casting all their influence on the side of the great rebel, in a moment of utmost extremity, when danger compasses them about, they will change leaders. But this is not so easily done. The experience, the education, the discipline of a life of sinful indulgence, has so thoroughly molded the character that they cannot then receive the image of Jesus. Had no light shone upon their pathway, the case would have been different. Mercy might interpose, and give them an opportunity to accept her overtures; but after light has been long rejected and despised, it will be finally withdrawn. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Discipline quotes by Woody Allen
#184. In certain areas I don't function well and in other areas I function very well. I'm very good professionally. I have good discipline, I'm able to write every day and do films and not go six times over the budget. I mean I'm a coherent person, but I also don't like to go through tunnels when I travel. I'm claustrophobic. #Quote by Woody Allen
Discipline quotes by Linda Ronstadt
#185. In the United States, we spend millions of dollars on sports because it promotes teamwork, discipline, and the experience of learning to make great progress in small increments. Learning to play music does all this and more. #Quote by Linda Ronstadt
Discipline quotes by Alain De Botton
#186. To make it into a discipline is to give too large a role to what is only an incitement. Reading is on the threshold of the spiritual life; it can introduce us to it: it does not constitute it. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Discipline quotes by Katherine Heigl
#187. I'm terrible with my workout regime and following it strictly. I'm terrible with a healthy diet and following it strictly. I'm terrible on the weekends about getting up at reasonable hours and all of those things. But, when it comes to my work and the discipline it takes to get to work on time - I hate unprofessionalism. #Quote by Katherine Heigl
Discipline quotes by Donald S. Whitney
#188. But even though disciplining yourself is sometimes diffcult and involves struggle, self-discipline is not self-punishment. It is instead an attempt to do what, prompted by the Spirit, you actually want in your heart to do. #Quote by Donald S. Whitney
Discipline quotes by Otto Weininger
#189. The danger of insanity is always present in those who try to penetrate the discipline of logic and pure knowledge. #Quote by Otto Weininger
Discipline quotes by Amelia Barr
#190. Dreams are large possessions ... they are an expansion of life, an enlightenment, and a discipline. I thank God for my dream life; my daily life would be far poorer, if it wanted the second sight of dreams. #Quote by Amelia Barr
Discipline quotes by Mia Hamm
#191. Sports can do so much. They've given me a framework: meeting new people, confidence, self-esteem, discipline, motivation. All these things I learned, whether I knew I was learning them or not, through sports. #Quote by Mia Hamm

Discipline quotes by George Lakoff
#195. In the system of conservative moral categories, government regulation falls under interference with the pursuit of self-interest by people trying to make a living, people using their self-discipline to become self-reliant (and, if possible, rich). These are the good people in our society. We want to encourage people like them and it is wrong to put roadblocks in their way. The #Quote by George Lakoff

Discipline quotes by Cate Blanchett

Discipline quotes by John C. Maxwell
#198. While everyone exercises influence, the size and strength of our influence depends upon our effort. No one leads well without paying the price of discipline. As we push ourselves to grow and to learn, we enlarge our sphere of influence. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Discipline quotes by James Dobson
#199. 'Dare to Discipline' was published in 1970 in the midst of the Vietnam War and a culture of rebellion. The book was written in that context, but the principles of child rearing have not changed. #Quote by James Dobson
Discipline quotes by M. Scott Peck
#200. To be free people we must assume total responsibility for ourselves, but I doing so must possess the capacity to reject responsibility that is ot truly ours. To be organized and efficient, to live wisely, we must daily delay gratification and keep an eye on the future; yet to live joyously we must also possess the capacity, when it is not destructive, to live in the present and act spontaneously. In other words, discipline itself must be disciplined. The type of discipline required to discipline discipline is what I call balancing ... #Quote by M. Scott Peck
