“Every act of will is an act of self-limitation. To desire action is to desire limitation. In that sense, every act is an act of self-sacrifice. When you choose anything, you reject everything else.”
G. K. Chesterton
“Who has confidence in himself will gain the confidence of others.”
“Knowledge is terrible; it interferes with doing things my way.”
“Self-will is like a magnifying glass: if you're doing good, it makes the good deed better, but if you're doing bad, it makes the misdeed worse.”
“In the still of the night I can hear my thoughts and dance into obscurity”
“He who cannot obey himself will be commanded. That is the nature of living creatures.”
“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion and desire.”
