He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty: and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. – PROVERBS 16:32
The strong man is the one who ever keeps himself under strict discipline, who makes his passions his servants and never allows them to be his master; who is ever led by his mind and not by his tendencies.
He drills and disciplines his desires, and never allows them to interfere with his character.
He is never the slave of his dispositions, nor the sport of impulse.
He is the commander of himself.
He is never the slave of his strongest desire.
He understands that he who would command others must first learn to obey, and he who would command his own powers must learn to be submissive to the still small voice within.
He disciplines the passions, curb pride and impatience.
