Self-Control Leads To Happiness

“If a man will understand how intimately, yea, how inseparably, self-control and happiness are associated, he has but to look into his own heart, and upon the world around,...Looking upon the lives of men and women, he will perceive how the hasty word, the bitter retort, the act of deception, the blind prejudice and foolish resentment bring wretchedness and even ruin in their train.”      
-  James Allen


If we can't control ourselves there will never be enough police. If we can control ourselves, we don't need police.
