SELF-DENIAL
[ Also see Abstinence Frugality Indulgence Moderation Sacrifice Temperance ]

Self-denial does not belong to religion as characteristic of it; it belongs to human life; the lower nature must always be denied when you are trying to rise to a higher sphere.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Only the soul that with an overwhelming impulse and a perfect trust gives itself up forever to the life of other men, finds the delight and peace which such complete self-surrender has to give.
      - Phillips Brooks

The lives of men who have been always growing are strewed along their whole course with the things they have learned to do without.
      - Phillips Brooks

      - David Hume

There is nothing fruitful except sacrifice.
      - Jean-Baptiste Henri Lacordaire

Teach him to deny himself.
      - Robert E. Lee

Alas! this time is never the time for self-denial, it is always the next time. Abstinence is so much more pleasant to contemplate upon the other side of indulgence.
      - George MacDonald

Pure self-denial is our good angel's hand barring the gates of sin.
      - Abbe Mullois

Self-denial is indispensable to a strong character, and the loftiest kind thereof comes only of a religious stock,--from consciousness of obligation and dependence upon God.
      - Theodore Parker

Self-denial is the quality of which Jesus Christ set us the example.
      - Ary Scheffer

There never did and never will exist anything permanently noble and excellent in a character which was a stranger to the exercise of resolute self-denial.
      - Sir Walter Scott

Self-denial is the best riches.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)
