DISCIPLINE
[ Also see Education Indulgence Order Punishment Self-improvement Study ]

He that hath wife and children hath given hostages to fortune, for they are impediments to great enterprises, either of virtue or mischief. * * * Certainly wife and children are a kind of discipline of humanity.
      - Francis Bacon

A dull axe never loves grindstones, but a keen workman does; and he puts his tool on them in order that it may be sharp. And men do not like grinding; but they are dull for the purposes which God designs to work out with them, and therefore He is grinding them.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The heart must be divorced from its idols. Age does a great deal in curing the man of his frenzy; but if God has a special work for a man, he takes a shorter and sharper course with him. This grievous loss is only a further and more expensive education for the work of the ministry; it is but saying more closely, "Will you pay the price?"
      - Lord David Cecil (Edward Christian David Cecil)

It takes tremendous discipline to control the influence, the power you have over other people's lives.
      - Clint Eastwood

Discipline is simply the art of making the soldiers fear their officers more than the enemy.
      - Claude Arien Helvetius

Man must be disciplined, for he is by nature raw and wild.
      - Immanuel Kant

Has it never occurred to us, when surrounded by sorrows, that they may be sent to us only for our instruction, as we darken the cages of birds when we wish to teach them to sing.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

No evil propensity of the human heart is so powerful that it may not be subdued by discipline.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

A stern discipline pervades all nature, which is a little cruel that it may be very kind.
      - Herbert Spencer

Discipline, like the bridle in the hand of a good rider, should exercise its influence without appearing, to do so; should be ever active, both as a support and as a restraint, yet seem to lie easily in hand. It must always be ready to check or to pull up, as occasion may require; and only when the horse is a runaway should the action of the curb be perceptible.
      - Unknown

It is never wise to slip the bands of discipline.
      - Lewis (Lew) Wallace

The strength one can eke from little, who knows till he has been subjected to the trial?
      - Lewis (Lew) Wallace

Cheerfulness in most cheerful people, is the rich and satisfying result of strenuous discipline.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple
