Self-Control Quotes


Exercising self-control is one of the great struggles of mankind. In our world of instant gratification, controlling our impulses is difficult at best. At other times, they are overpowering. And not all together equal. As Camryn Manheim put it in one of many self-control quotes, “It's okay to be a fat man. It's prestige and power and all of that. But fat women are seen as just lazy and stupid and having no self-control.” As you can see in self-control quotes, what is under control for one is out of control for another. From food, sex and exercise to work, relationships and shopping, exercising self-control is a lifelong process where finding a middle ground is the ultimate victory.
