The bottom line: All of your investing decisions should be grounded in your own investment policy statement. By taking a “top-down” look at your finances and writing out a road map, your policy statement will add an important element of discipline to your approach.
Lewis Schiff
I didn’t get acne until after college, and I was very concerned, not only because I didn’t have the discipline to not pick at my face but then that would lead to scarring and more acne – it’s a vicious cycle that can be broken!
Hannah Bronfman
Every act of self-discipline increases your confidence, trust, and belief in yourself and your abilities.
Brian Tracy
That kind of discipline whose pungent severity is in the manifestations of paternal love, compassion, and tenderness is the most sure of its object.
Hosea Ballou
In Queen Mary’s, which was an all-girls’ college, I learned discipline, hard work and to be competitive. But at Madras Film Institute, I learned about the world, being free and knowledgeable, and thinking beyond oneself.
Suhasini Maniratnam
Coach Landry was a master at maintaining discipline and creating an environment where ordinary people could achieve extra ordinary results.
Danny White
The surest sign that you’re working with the life-affirming kind of discipline, rather than the spirit-depressing kind, is that you don’t complain very much about doing what it takes.
Danielle LaPorte
I’m not a perfectionist, but I like discipline. I’m obedient, but I’m not a perfectionist. I think it’s important to work your hardest and be as kind as possible to everyone you work with. The goal, every day, is keeping focused on that.
Natalie Portman
Without discipline in spiritual pursuits, the central nervous system doesn’t have a chance to adjust and grow with the increased demand. It would be like putting a high voltage into a small bulb—it is bound to explode.
Sivananda Radha Saraswati
Good character is that quality which makes one dependable whether being watched or not, which makes one truthful when it is to one’s advantage to be a little less than truthful, which makes one courageous when faced with great obstacles and which endows one with the firmness of’ wise self-discipline.
Arthur S. Adams
Self-discipline is a great time-saver; it is the ability to make yourself work on only those things that are most important to you.
Brian Tracy
I got to ninth grade and there was wrestling, and I went, ‘Wait a minute, this is fun.’ Basically, it was a chance for a small kid like me to get a chance to wail on another small kid. I went, ‘I love this.’ The discipline of it was great. Plus, I really started to be good at it.
Robin Williams
I appreciate what I’ve achieved, and nearly all of that is because of my dad. He pushed me to train harder than I would have done if he wasn’t there to discipline me.
Joe Calzaghe
Lewis sought no disciples, nor does he offer a program or solution, rather his contribution is a critical discipline. Lewis is a stimulant, a mode of perception, rather than a position or practice.
Wyndham Lewis
You don’t need to stick to tough rules or overnight changes; you need not rely on hardcore discipline that makes you hate your life. You need only focus on progress, not perfection. Lean in to the process of losing weight, and it will happen easily.
Kathy Freston
A foreign threat is useful to put things in order in one’s own camp, to make one’s allies follow the bloc discipline. Iran does not fit this role too well, and it is very tempting to revive Russia’s image of the enemy. But nobody in Europe is afraid anymore.
Vladimir Putin
My strong sense of discipline has always been with me, and it also gave me the need for deep affection. I have never been satisfied with acquaintances who are superficial, volatile, or quick to change. I have surrounded myself with people with whom I am in total complicity.
Giorgio Armani
Blessed be the discipline which makes me reach out my soul’s roots into closer union with Jesus! Blessed be the dews of the Spirit which keep my leaf ever green! Blessed be the trials which shake down the ripe, golden fruits from the branches.
Theodore L. Cuyler
Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.
David Whyte
In the general tendency toward specialization, philosophy too has established itself as a specialized discipline, one purified of all specific content. In so doing, philosophy has denied its own constitutive concept: the intellectual freedom that does not obey the dictates of specialized knowledge.
Theodor Adorno
The purpose of God’s discipline is not to punish us but to transform us.
Jerry Bridges
I like ‘Discipline.’ That’s my favorite King Crimson album.
Tim Commerford
Age acquires no value save through thought and discipline.
James Truslow Adams
Mine is just a simple old human story – of one person trying, with great rigor and discipline, to comprehend her personal relationship with divinity.
Elizabeth Gilbert
I pretty much admire anybody who has the discipline and the will to make a career out of fighting. It takes buckets of nerve.
Katie Kitamura
One of the great tragedies we witness almost daily is the tragedy of men of high aim and low achievement. Their motives are noble. Their proclaimed ambition is praiseworthy. Their capacity to achieve is great. But their discipline is weak. They succumb to indolence. Appetite robs them of will.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I watched my parents. My dad worked nights, and I was aware of how much he was doing for us. My mom was a Tupperware lady and also worked at the school. I always felt that I couldn’t let them down. And I had a natural discipline from early on. I was always training for something.
Jennifer Lopez
When you are working with a highly professional, motivated group that is accountable, the more freedom you give that group, the more discipline you’re going to get in return.
Joe Maddon
Who but a physicist, in the research lab or the corporation, could mix and match multiple ideas, models, technologies from different disciplines and thrive on change and new ideas…?
Robert Gibbs
Genius at first is little more than a great capacity for receiving discipline.
George Eliot
Success is a matter of understanding and religiously practicing specific, simple habits that always lead to success.
Robert Ringer
Anyone can train hard. Do you have the discipline to recover?
Lauren Fleshman
Even if you can’t afford to buy a painting, you can experience it. You can go see the Mona Lisa and be transported. You can see the discipline and suffering in a van Gogh.
Adrien Brody
Discipline isn’t about showing a dog who’s boss; it’s about taking responsibility for a living creature you have brought into your world.
Cesar Millan
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child.He needs guidance.If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Bette Davis
For a writer, obsession is a good substitute for self-discipline.
Vikram Seth
I took ballet for two years in high school and then in college on and off, and I went back into class. I’m nowhere near good enough to be a professional, but it’s great to be in that environment. The discipline is so impressive.
Peter Vack
Too often, people equate discipline with cursing. When you go to Catholic school, the nuns don’t curse a word, but you get discipline.
Herm Edwards
For some odd reason, I had an early and extreme multidisciplinary cast of mind. I couldn’t stand reaching for a small idea in my own discipline when there was a big idea right over the fence in somebody else’s discipline. So I just grabbed in all directions for the big ideas that would really work.
Charlie Munger
Protectionism in all its forms should be rejected, and efforts should be made to discipline measures that constitute barriers to trade.
Sushma Swaraj
Discipline is a choice. It’s simply consistently choosing the hard right over the easy wrong.
Rory Vaden
I’ve always played sport, ever since I was little. I played volleyball and I believe sport teaches you a lot, such as teamwork, respect and discipline.
Gisele Bundchen
To become the kind of person you want to become, you’ve got to have discipline. It’s easier to keep to your standards 100 percent of the time versus 98 percent of the time.
Clayton M. Christensen
Falling in love is biologically natural; sustaining love is biologically un-natural. Sustaining love requires a learned discipline. The discipline of love. The discipline of understanding our partner. (I’ve never heard someone say I want a divorce – my partner understands me.)
Warren Farrell
Small disciplines repeated with consistency every day lead to great achievements gained slowly over time.
John C. Maxwell
Few men are brave by nature, but good discipline and experience make many so.
Niccolo Machiavelli
Professional creativity requires more than inspiration, talent, and discipline – it requires an endurance that few are aware of and even fewer have.
Lela Loren
I hated school, didn’t like the discipline.
Gary Gygax
I do admire actors who manage to lose huge amounts of weight for roles: you have to have astonishing discipline to do that to your body and maintain it for a certain length of time before letting yourself go back to normal.
Anna Madeley
Monetary discipline forces fiscal discipline on the politicians as well.
Robert Mundell
I prefer the discipline of knowledge to the anarchy of ignorance.
David Ogilvy
Players like Alastair Cook do not come around very often. To play for so long and achieve so much says everything about his fitness, concentration, discipline and skill.
Jonathan Agnew
I believe in discipline, so I’m not the right person to cry about weakness and things like this, but maybe I’m not human.
John Galliano
I don’t know that my schooling was conducive to wild ideas and creativity, but it gave me discipline, drive. They taught me how to think. I really know how to think.
Lady Gaga
I’ve been involved in the sport since I was seven-years-old and I have learned so many things in life from it, such as making friends and discipline.
Jenny Meadows
Personal discipline, when it becomes a way of life in our personal, family, and career lives, will enable us to do some incredible things.
Zig Ziglar
Sport is a seductive metaphor (life as a game in which we gain victory through hard work, discipline, and visualizing success). but the older metaphor of farming (life as hard labor that is subject to weather and quirks of blind fate and may return no reward whatsoever and don’t be surprised) is still in our blood.
Garrison Keillor
Even as you make progress, you need the discipline to keep from backtracking and sabotaging the success as it’s happening.
Nipsey Hussle
Writing is this odd act, right? To sit and type, or write by hand, or whatever people do. And it requires a real discipline because it is really a sheer act of will that you’re creating something, and you’re doing it by yourself.
Noah Hawley
Some of our most successful businessmen in US grew up in orphanages. They were well treated, and they learned discipline. They learned right or wrong, and they have wonderful careers.
Phyllis Schlafly
In a world where it is so easy to neglect, deny, corrupt and suppress the truth, the scientist may find his discipline severe. For him, truth is so seldom the sudden light that shows new order and beauty; more often, truth is the uncharted rock that sinks his ship in the dark.
John Cornforth
In war, discipline is superior to strength; but if that discipline is neglected there is no longer any difference between the soldier and the peasant.
Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
How could so many intelligent people be so grievously wrong for such an extended period of time? How could they ignore so much overwhelming evidence that contradicted their most basic theories? These questions, too, deserve their own discipline: the sociology of error.
Steven Johnson
Rather the pain of discipline than the pain of regret.
Bob Andrews
If he cannot stop the mind that seeks after fame and profit, he will spend his life without finding peace.
There is something good in men that really yearn for discipline.
Vince Lombardi
Few men are born brave. Many become so through training and force of discipline.
Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
He who cannot establish dominion over himself will have no dominion over others.
Leonardo da Vinci
Even the lowest of the Hindus, the Pariah, has less of the brute in him than a Briton in a similar social status. This is the result of an old and excellent religious civilization. This evolution to a higher spiritual state is possible only through discipline and education.
Swami Vivekananda
Genius is the capacity for receiving and improving by discipline.
George Eliot
Grace is the mastery of truth, the teacher of discipline, the light of the heart, the comforter of affliction, the banisher of sorrow, the nurse of devotion.
Thomas a Kempis
People ask me, how is managing in the New Economy different from managing in the Old Economy? Actually, it’s a lot the same. It’s about the financial discipline of the bottom line, understanding your customers, segmenting your customers by their needs, and building a world-class management team.
Meg Whitman
The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy.
Henri Nouwen
Artists are often having very similar conversations across the various disciplines through which they choose to excel, but you rarely see them exist in the same pages or spaces.
Michael Salu
I don’t choose to be a common man. I want to be better tomorrow than today. And through a commitment to work and discipline, but mostly hard work. I’ll be a little more content, and a little different from the average guy.
Jay Robinson
Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are still steeped in hurt and resentment. It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which I can choose gratitude instead of a complaint.
Henri Nouwen
The detailing on the sets of ‘Gandhi’ was very minute. There was immense discipline and nothing was taken for granted.
Rohini Hattangadi
People like me have to have the discipline only to work for clients, corporations, political people, products, services, networks that we believe in and we want to see succeed.
Frank Luntz
Self-discipline, although difficult, and not always easy while combating negative emotions, should be a defensive measure.
Dalai Lama
Left to itself the masculine imagination has very little appreciation for the here and now; it prefers to dwell on what is absent, on what has been or may be. If men are more punctual than women, it is because they know that, without the external discipline of clock time, they would never get anything done.
W. H. Auden
When you step into an intersection of fields, disciplines, or cultures, you can combine existing concepts into a large number of extraordinary ideas.
Frans Johansson
To make the mind obey you is a spiritual discipline.
I set as my goal to be the best dancer I could be. Not the most famous, or the highest paid dancer, just the best I could be. Out of this discipline came great freedom and calm.
Suzanne Farrell
A lot of people talk about the spirituality of Buddhism, and it is a spiritual discipline. But in Shambhala there also is a notion that you have to be synchronized with both heaven and earth.
Sakyong Mipham
I knew that, without killing the creative mood, I had to keep the balance between my emotional outburst and the merciless discipline of a super-personal control, thus submitting myself ti the self-imposed law of dance composition
Mary Wigman
I’ve learned a lot from trainers over the years, but mainly that you need discipline to stay in the gym and out of the many fine cupcake emporiums on every corner.
Lauren Graham
The popular masses are like water, and the army is like a fish. How then can it be said that when there is water, a fish will have difficulty in preserving its existence? An army which fails to maintain good discipline gets into opposition with the popular masses, and thus by its own action dries up the water.
Mao Zedong
In terms of instilling the values of mental toughness and work ethic, discipline is the gift that keeps on giving.
William Baldwin
The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.
Pierre de Coubertin
Eventually, Aristotle appeared among the Greeks. He improved the methods of logic and systematized its problems and details. He assigned to logic its proper place as the first philosophical discipline and the introduction to philosophy. Therefore he is called the First Teacher.
Ibn Khaldun
There are weaknesses that you have to understand and it takes a lot of discipline for the players to be able to play it effectively and have confidence in what they’re doing.
Tony Dungy
Charity is an unending self-discipline which always looks and leads towards the eternal affection. Therefore, its triumph shall be lasting and everlasting.
Julia Ward Howe
A sapling must be hedged about for protection, but when it becomes a tree, a hedge would be a hindrance. So there is no need to criticise and condemn the old forms.
Swami Vivekananda
What is fashion? It’s discipline. Discipline and a credo to do only the best, down to the smallest detail.
Manolo Blahnik
Shooting on film is great because it imparts discipline: What do you need to see so you’re not finding it in the camera. When I’m shooting, I have the scene in mind, where I’m going to have certain lines. I learned to overlap and to shoot more than I think I need. That was the learning curve.
Dee Rees
The only discipline that lasts is self-discipline.
Bum Phillips
Any attempt to break with the past, or with existing social structures, is a failure if it leads to a bored, listless, and colourless style of life; assertive and enduring innovation, like the mastering of a new environment, requires the confidence and discipline which are founded on exuberant emotions.
John Carroll
It takes as much discipline to be a mother and a wife as it does to do anything else.
Suzanne Vega
It’s up to you to make everyday as perfect as possible.
It’s a question of will and discipline.
Karl Lagerfeld
You want to surround yourself with people who are as dedicated to their discipline as you are to yours and let them do what they do.
Victor Levin
The beauty of football is you have to perform through ups and downs in a public form with a team and the discipline and the pushing through it and the preparation that it takes to be great – all of those things have served me well.
Nnamdi Asomugha
I still wanted to get into the NBA. I was still on the team, I was a starting point guard and I was on and off the team because of my grades. That was the thing, discipline, discipline, discipline, and then I was going home to a very strict dad. He ran the house like the military.
Ryan Montgomery
There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind, and there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind.
Gautama Buddha
I was starstruck by Madonna. She’s one of the few remaining superstars. I’m so impressed by her level of discipline towards her career. We did have a little chat, and she wasn’t remotely intimidating, just lovely and open.
Donna Air
Scientific power is like inherited wealth; attained without discipline. You read about what others have done, and you take the next step. You can do it very young. You can make progress very fast.
Michael Crichton
I’m really grateful for my dancers’ discipline.
Teri Garr
If you’re a songwriter, you have to do homework. You can exist for a while on the inspiration, but at some point, you have to sit down and have the discipline to write – to finish the poem, as they say.
Jenny Lewis
Only when Stephen Strange has his accident and everything that he’s ever had in his life falls apart that he becomes pretty monstrous. It’s the self-loathing rage of a wounded animal and he doesn’t have a coping mechanism at all. It ties in with the discipline and the magic of this world.
Benedict Cumberbatch
I have discipline; I look after my voice.
Julio Iglesias
The soap opera was so long ago – the thing about soap operas, and there’s something to be said for doing it, but you do a script a day. I don’t want to say it’s a training ground; it really isn’t, but what it does teach you is discipline.
Frank Grillo
I’m practicing the discipline of not having to have the last word.
Dallas Willard
…being an atheist required discipline very like that of being Catholic. One could never yield to the idea of a supernatural authority, no matter how often one might be tempted. To think that a personal God had made the world was to yield to a demonic and superstitious and destructive belief.
Anne Rice
One does not “find oneself” by pursuing one’s self, but on the contrary by pursuing something else and learning through discipline or routine. . . who one is and wants to be.
May Sarton
We are so trained in the thought system of fear and attack that we get to the point where natural thinking – love – feels unnatural and unnatural thinking – fear – feels natural. It takes real discipline and training to unlearn the thought system of fear.
Marianne Williamson
Surely the writer is to address a world of laborers, and such therefore must be his own discipline.
Henry David Thoreau
American Women: How they mortify the flesh in order to make it appetizing! Their beauty is a vast industry, their enduring allure a discipline which nuns or athletes might find excessive.
Malcolm Muggeridge
To those searching for truth — not the truth of dogma and darkness but the truth brought by reason, search, examination, and inquiry, discipline is required. For faith, as well intentioned as it may be, must be built on facts, not fiction — faith in fiction is a damnable false hope.
Thomas A. Edison
More than print and ink, a newspaper is a collection of fierce individualists who somehow manage to perform the astounding daily miracle of merging their own personalities under the discipline of the deadline and retain the flavor of their own minds in print.
Arthur Ochs Sulzberger
Catholic doctrine and discipline may be walls; but they are the walls of a playground.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The whole reason I did a bodybuilding show was to see how far I could push my own discipline. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. When I made the switch to acting, I was able to break that down into small, measurable goals like I did with bodybuilding.
Matt McGorry
True love is a discipline in which each divines the secret self of the other and refuses to believe in the mere daily self.
William Butler Yeats
Discipline is the only sure way I know to convince people to believe in themselves
Pat Summitt
The industrial world enjoys a rare combination of growth and low inflation; the ‘Washington consensus,’ a model of economic development that emphasizes macroeconomic discipline and open markets, is being adopted by more countries.
Zanny Minton Beddoes
The Roman legions were formed in the first instance of citizen soldiers, who yet had been made to submit to a rigid discipline, and to feel that in that submission lay their strength.
Goldwin Smith
Spiritual education is not a distinct and separate discipline; it is part and parcel of all types and levels of education, In fact, it is the very foundation on which a lasting edifice can be built.
Sathya Sai Baba
When I was a kid, I wanted to be serious, like Daniel Day-Lewis. No one really dreams of being a comic actor, do they? Now I realise how stupid that is – and it’s because comic acting isn’t taken seriously enough. It’s a discipline. You know instantly – either you’re funny and getting the laughs, or you’re not.
Chris O’Dowd
It is important to value intellect and discipline, of course, but it is also important to recognize the power of irrationality, enthusiasm and vast energy.
Kay Redfield Jamison
To think of the part one little woman can play in the life of a man, so that to renounce her may be a very good imitation of heroism, and to win her may be a discipline.
George Eliot
The discipline of live theater – doing the same perfect thing night after night, eight times a week – never ceases to amaze me
Neil Patrick Harris
I’m not a big believer in disciplined writers. What does discipline mean? The writer who forces himself to sit down and write for seven hours every day might be wasting those seven hours if he’s not in the mood and doesn’t feel the juice. I don’t think discipline equals creativity.
Bret Easton Ellis
.. we shall not be properly educated ourselves, nor will the guardians whom we are training, until we can recognise the qualities of discipline, courage, generosity, greatness of mind, and others akin to them, as well as their opposites in all their manifestations.
Just a few daily disciplines make a big difference
Jim Rohn
Discipline is not consistency, and the reason why I say that is – like, for an example, making prayer five times a day, that establishes routine and consistency. That I can do. And having certain fundamental consistencies in business, can do. But time management, outside of that, that’s where that’s a challenge.
Ali Shaheed Muhammad
Some of the greatest values that have influenced me through the years are those that I learned as a boy growing up on the farm. I remember mostly the love in our family, but I also remember the discipline. Then there was the work; we all had to work.
Billy Graham
In Pakistan lies our deliverance, defence and honour…In our solidarity, unity and discipline lie the strength, power and sanction behind us to carry on this fight successfully. No sacrifice should be considered too great. We shall never accept any future constitution on the basis of a united India.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
What makes a poem is the discipline inherent in making a poem: trying to fit feelings in the requisite number of syllables and lines, disciplining one’s feelings.
Derek Walcott
The discipline of writing something down is the first step toward making it happen.
Lee Iacocca
I’m just going to try and be a good dad and not spoil the kid: give him love and encouragement but also discipline. Me and my woman, we don’t want him to feel too entitled.
Julian Casablancas
Reasonable orders are easy enough to obey; it is capricious, bureaucratic or plain idiotic demands that form the habit of discipline.
Barbara W. Tuchman
As for discipline—it’s important, but sort of overrated. The more important virtue for a writer, I believe, is self-forgiveness. Because your writing will always disappoint you. Your laziness will always disappoint you.
Elizabeth Gilbert
The truth is, gymnastics is a beautiful sport that has allowed me to grow and learn invaluable life lessons: sacrifice, dedication, discipline. Eventually, it led me to my voice.
Katelyn Ohashi
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.
Calvin Coolidge
Together with worldly education, you have to cultivate the human values and undertake spiritual discipline.
Sathya Sai Baba
I find when most people are honest about their spiritual pilgrimage, they admit to the difficulty of maintaining the habit of a spiritual discipline. What attracks me most about the Anglican spiritual tradition is that it provides purposeful spiritual direction in the life of Christ.
Robert E. Webber
Songs don’t just suddenly arrive like a taxi you have to work on them and you have to put a lot of time and energy and self discipline into creating that kind of thing.
Chris de Burgh
“Integrative” simply means that this approach attempts to include as many important truths from as many disciplines as possible-from East as well as the West, from premodern and modern and postmodern, from the hard sciences of physics to the tender sciences of spirituality.
Ken Wilber
The thing about discipline is that people misunderstand the word discipline. People think discipline in the dog world is punishment. Discipline is how you achieve what you want to achieve in life. You have to be very focused, very disciplined, very consistent, very diligent. All of those things.
Cesar Millan
The NFL is one of the first places where many star players finally see discipline. Finally have an authoritative male figure: Buck stops here, I make all the calls, you will not get an opinion.
Colin Cowherd
Discipline yourself so others won’t have to.
John Wooden
Every man has a feminine side, and every woman a masculine side. It is important to use discipline with intuition, and to use intuition with objectivity.
Paulo Coelho
There will be internal discipline, but I can envisage both of them playing for Newcastle again. They’re top-class players and they don’t come along very often.
Graeme Souness
I’d love to do something where I have to completely transform. Or something that is very physical and would test me with discipline in that way. Something that I’d maybe have to train for.
Jodie Comer
One of the many ways of contesting level-zero, and one of the best, is to take photographs, an activity in which one should start becoming adept very early in life, teach it to children since it requires discipline, aesthetic education, a good eye and steady fingers.
Julio Cortazar
All kids have the dream of becoming a professional soccer player, but to become that you need so many things. You have to have talent, be hard working, have support, have discipline. You also have to have ability, physical and technical, and understand the game.
Decades, if not centuries are normally required for people to acquire the necessary disciplines and habits. In Britain, the road [to democratic government] took seven centuries to traverse.
Jeane Kirkpatrick
The surest test of discipline is its absence.
Clara Barton
A boy or girl who knows that love abounds at home will not resent well-deserved punishment. One who is unloved or ignored will hate any form of discipline.
James Dobson
The enemies of intellectual liberty always try to present their case as a plea for discipline versus individualism. The issue truth-versus-untruth is as far as possible kept in the background.
George Orwell
Whoever submits himself to a super-discipline can expect great triumphs.
Samael Aun Weor
The biggest challenge is to stay focused. It’s to have the discipline when there are so many competing things.
Alexa Hirschfeld
As we grow detached from things, we come (with God’s help) to master our desires, and we give the mastery over to God. Discipline and divine grace heal the intellect and the will of the effects of concupiscence. We can begin to see things clearly.
Scott Hahn
It takes some discipline and hard work, but relying on credit when things go wrong is a trap.
Dave Ramsey
Write because you love the art and the discipline, not because you’re looking to sell something.
Ann Patchett
I consider discipline indispensable, but it must be inner discipline, motivated by a common purpose and a strong feeling of comradeship.
Buenaventura Durruti
Do Christians sin? Yes, absolutely. But can Christians live in a state of sin without discipline and without being brought back in obedience to their Father? Absolutely not.
Paul Washer
Discipline gives you the freedom to be creative.
Denise Morrison
Single parents in particular may have trouble maintaining themselves as authority figures because of underlying guilt; they feel acontinuing sense that they have deprived their kids of the second parent, and so they tend to give in to the children’s requests, even when unreasonable.
Marge M. Kennedy
In order to be responsible, you need some discipline in your life. For a while I lost mine.
Donatella Versace
There are two pains in life. There is the pain of discipline and the pain of disappointment. If you can handle the pain of discipline, then you’ll never have to deal with the pain of disappointment.
Nick Saban
Nobody would ever think, “Oh, get into acting so you can live the straight and narrow path,” but it gave me a sense of discipline and focus.
Juliette Lewis
There’s two kinds of pain in sports: the pain of discipline and the pain of regret.
Jeff Blatnick
I believe that rewards in life are deserved. Every reward is the fruit of discipline, of dedication and of sacrifices. And of stubbornness.
Sophia Loren
Motivation gets you going, but discipline keeps you growing. That’s the Law of Consistency. It doesn’t matter how talented you are. It doesn’t matter how many opportunities you receive. If you want to grow, consistency is key.
John C. Maxwell
My father taught me that only through self-discipline can you achieve freedom. Pour water in a cup and you can drink; without the cup, the water would splash all over. The cup is discipline.
Ricardo Montalban
There is just now a great clamor and demand for “culture;” but it is not so much culture that is needed as discipline.
William Greenough Thayer Shedd
Before something can become a habit it must first be practiced as a discipline.
Ken Blanchard
Sailors, with their built in sense of order, service and discipline, should really be running the world.
Nicholas Monsarrat
There is something outrageous about such a huge body of evidence being put together, then being confirmed in all kinds of other scientific disciplines, particularly genetics, and having other people just sort of deny it for reasons that have nothing to do with truth.
Matthew Chapman
Fishing is a… discipline in the equality of men – for all men are equal before fish.
Herbert Hoover
Learning when ‘enough is enough’ is the discipline of a lifetime.
Gail Godwin
I had been working at home at the time and was looking to find a studio space somewhere outside of my apartment. I thought that might be good for me in terms of having a little bit more discipline with my work habits.
Ralph Reese
People are just trying to work their jobs, raise their families, discipline their kids, and have a good life… Politics has just become like bad weather. And they deserve clear skies.
Eddie Vedder
To truly be committed to a life of honesty, love and discipline, we must be willing to commit ourselves to reality.
John Bradshaw
Not only does inspiration from the Lord compensate for want of facts; it also induces men by self-discipline, to conform in their personal conduct and in their dealings one with another to the highest standards they know. In other words, it gives men the capacity which distinguishes wisdom from knowledge.
Marion G. Romney
Discipline for me is about respect. It’s not even about self-respect; it’s about respect for life and all it offers.
Robert Downey, Jr.
The trick to success is to choose the right habit and bring just enough discipline to establish it.
Gary W. Keller
Our strategic evolution has established Monsanto as the leading innovator in agricultural seeds and technology, .. The financial discipline we have exercised has also allowed us to establish a solid foundation which is poised for growth in the years ahead.
Terry Crews
I embrace the concept of enlightened self-interest – that in doing something for others, people also reap profound benefits for themselves. It might involve a little bit of sacrifice and discipline, but, and this is so crucial to understand, that participation has given me back so, so much more than I have given it.
Simon McKeon
As we grow older, we live more coarsely, we relax a little in our disciplines, and, to some extent, cease to obey our finest instincts. But we should be fastidious to the extreme of sanity, disregarding the gibes of those who are more unfortunate than ourselves.
Henry David Thoreau
A great discipline comes with knowing that everyone’s very focused. I’ve never shot a scene thinking, I wonder if this will make it. Every scene I shoot, I know that it’s going to make it into the final cut.
Jeremy Bolt
Discipline is giving yourself a command and following it up with action
Bob Proctor
The question is whether you can bear freedom. At present the vast majority of men, whether white or black, require the discipline of labor which enslaves them for their own good.
Henry David Thoreau
His [Sam Fuller] self-discipline was amazing. No matter what happened, he’d always go out to his Royal Upright typewriter and just keep working on his stories, his “yarns” as he called them.
Curtis Hanson
Turn up for work. Discipline allows creative freedom. No discipline equals no freedom.
Jeanette Winterson
Too many people have refused to begin running or have quickly dropped out of running programs because they ‘have no talent for it.’ Ridiculous. Talent has nothing to do with it. The only thing that matters is mental discipline.
Amby Burfoot
Cooking is one of my favourite things – from going to the market, bringing the stuff home and preparing it, to cleaning the kitchen afterwards. I’ve lost my figure a few times. There have been moments when I’ve overeaten, for comfort. But with discipline and hard work, you can get your figure back.
Linda Evangelista
One-half of life is luck; the other half is discipline – and that’s the important half, for without discipline you wouldn’t know what to do with luck.
Carl Zuckmayer

Blythe Danner
To me, this acquirement of nervous, physical, and emotional concentration is the one element possessed to the highest degree by the truly great dancers of the world. Its acquirement is the result of discipline, of energy in the deep sense. That is why there are so few great dancers.
Martha Graham
You can’t have the fruits without the roots. It’s the principle of sequencing: Private Victories proceed Public Victories. Self-mastery and self-discipline are the foundation of good relationships with others.
Stephen Covey
Faith is a state of mind that can be conditioned through self-discipline. Faith will accomplish.
Bruce Lee
The trouble is. . .that everybody sneers at restrictions and demands freedom, till something annoying happens; then they demand angrily what has become of the discipline.
Dorothy L. Sayers
One of the things that will never get explained in the films is how Ben was able to retain his identity, because it happened somewhere between the third and fourth movies. I set up that this is a discipline that he learned from Yoda; Yoda told him how to do that.
George Lucas
Maybe it was the challenge of flight, the opportunity to fly, the competition of summer camp and the inspiration and discipline of West Point. I think all of those things helped me to develop a dedication and inspired me to get ahead.
Buzz Aldrin
Every symbol, word, concept, discipline and field is only a temporary rest stop on the highway of discovery.
Bryant H. McGill
It was high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, ‘always do what you are afraid to do.’

Invention requires both disciplines, strict common sense and wild imagination.
Vanna Bonta
Discipline is not punishment. Discipline is changing someone’s behavior.

Santiago Calatrava
USNA had a great engineering school, which was one of my interests, and I knew I would benefit from the great discipline and accountability that Navy provides.
David Robinson
With the proper motivation, you can do anything. I was just a poor kid that ate pork and beans out of a can and apple sauce. I went from rags to riches. But it does take a lot of determination, inner strength, drive, and discipline.
Lee Haney
When one practices discipline and moves from the beginner’s territory to immovable wisdom, one makes a return and falls back to the level of the beginner.

When we teach ourselves and our children discipline, we are teaching them and ourselves how to suffer and also how to grow.
M. Scott Peck
At a purely practical level, history is important because it provides the basic skills needed for students to go further in sociology, politics, international relations and economics. History is also an ideal discipline for almost all careers in the law, the civil service and the private sector.

All excellence involves discipline and tenacity of purpose.
John W. Gardner
Young people are not immune to following God’s commands concerning discipline.
Monica Johnson
A country without discipline would be chaotic and unstable.
Nguyen Phu Trong
But look within and watch the stuff coming up-restlessness, anxiety, impatience, pain-just watch it come up and don’t get involved. Much to your surprise, it will simply go away. It rises, it passes away. As simple as that. There is another word for self-discipline. It is patience.
Henepola Gunaratana
Discipline, it has been suggested, is the means of human spiritual evolution. What provides the motive, the energy for discipline? This force I believe to be love. I define love thus: The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth.
M. Scott Peck
The acknowledgment that God is always with us – even when we are least aware of it in our sensory being – requires discipline. To acknowledge the Unseen Real requires a concerted effort of our will at first. This is why the term practicing the presence is so useful.
Leanne Payne
It’s no good starting out by thinking one is a heaven-born genius- some people are, but very few. No, one is a tradesman – a tradesman in a good honest trade. You must learn the technical skills, and then, within that trade, you can apply your own creative ideas, but you must submit them to the discipline of form.
Agatha Christie
Nine-tenths of discipline is having the patience to do things right.
Pat Summitt
The church was always very adept at incorporating all the different artistic disciplines. What we call the church is actually an assemblage of different artistic forms, whether in its Biblical literature, or sculpture, painting, music.
Diego Cortez
The absolute key difference between television and radio is the ability of radio to communicate. With television you can watch the screen and your mind can be anywhere. On radio it requires a certain amount of discipline from the listener to follow what’s being said.
Jonathan Agnew
You don’t have to be musician to listen to music, and you don’t have to be a filmmaker to go to the cinema, but somehow when we think of science, we think of it only as an academic discipline.

Tryon Edwards
A culture of discipline is not a principle of business, it is a principle of greatness.
James C. Collins

Mahatma Gandhi
The main source of good discipline is growing up in a loving family, being loved and learning to love in return.
Benjamin Spock
There is nothing like having to change your physical form to put you in contact with every weak part of yourself, to train yourself in discipline. Put somebody on a treadmill and I’ll tell you how good they are at any other thing they do in life.
Will Smith
You are truly your own hero in running. It is up to you to have the responsibility and self-discipline to get the job done.
Adam Goucher
I’m a very disciplined person when it comes to my work, but discipline can’t save m from being a drug addict.
Steve Earle
Beware of endeavoring to become a great man in a hurry. One such attempt in ten thousand may succeed. These are fearful odds.
Benjamin Disraeli
I suppose the daily disciplines are just a reflection of the qualities of my inner world – a mixture of paralysis and terror and a lighter, freer, kind of rebellious woman. So those are just constantly pushing against each other, and that’s played out in every area of my life.
Miranda July
I started with shoes, and with hard work and discipline, the business prospered.

I’m not good enough, technically, to be a classic musician. I lack discipline.
Ritchie Blackmore
You see people who have been very heavy in their life who have taken that body, trimmed it down, firmed it up through discipline, exercise and being able to say no. Eating properly, that all comes into it.
Mike Ditka
I’m going to be a strict mum. I know that love is the most important thing – you’ve got to have lots of kisses and cuddles – but you also need to mix it with discipline or you’ll be in a heap of trouble.
Jill Scott
My early wounds were the English school system among other things. It wasn’t merely the discipline, it was the ways in which boys got what was called the school spirit.
George Woodcock
Many people think they want things, but they don’t really have the strength, the discipline. They are weak. I believe that you get what you want if you want it badly enough.
Sophia Loren
Discipline is training that corrects and perfects our mental faculties or molds our moral character. Discipline is control gained by enforced obedience. It is the deliberate cultivation of inner order.
Charles R. Swindoll
A miscalculation is not negligence, nor prudence a crime. I am a scientist. I base my action or inaction upon probability and evidence. There is a reason we call science a discipline! Inferior minds bolt or build pyres to roast the witches in their midst!
Rick Yancey
I am optimistic when I consider the spiritual dimension which the scientist’s discipline forces him to ignore.
William Golding
By and large I think art is made by people who have discipline married to talent in sufficiently large amounts to work even if they don’t feel like it. Anybody can get maudlin and decide to write poetry at 11 at night; the question is, can you do it at 8:30 on a Monday morning..?
Clive Barker
We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins. When those trained in the respective disciplines of medicine, philosophy, and theology are unable to arrive at any consensus, the judiciary, at this point in the development of man’s knowledge, is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.
Harry A. Blackmun
Innovation is a discipline not a lottery… It comes from the combination of two elements within my control: hard work and openmindedness.
Georges St-Pierre
In order to give meaning to the world, one has to feel oneself involved in what he frames. This attitude requires concentration, a discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry.
Henri Cartier-Bresson
Fishing is the chance to wash one’s soul with pure air. It brings meekness and inspiration, reduces our egoism, soothes our troubles and shames our wickedness. It is discipline in the equality of men–for all men are equal before fish.
Herbert Hoover
Philosophy is the replacement of category-habits by category-disciplines.
Gilbert Ryle
To live a disciplined life, and to accept the result of that discipline as the will of God – that is the mark of a man.
Tom Landry
I like the discipline of writing a script. You can’t go into the character’s head – you have to find these creative ways to help externalize what they’re thinking.
Gillian Flynn
Nature’s stern discipline enjoins mutual help at least as often as warfare. The fittest may also be the gentlest.
Theodosius Dobzhansky

Colin Wilson
The German is the discipline of fear; ours is the discipline of faith — and faith will triumph.
Joseph Joffre

Discipline is doing what you hate to do, but nonetheless doing it like you love it.
Mike Tyson

Marc Maron
Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things, I am tempted to think there are no little things.
Bruce Barton
This discipline and rough treatment are a furnace to extract the silver from the dross. This testing purifies the gold by boiling the scum away.
If you choose to become a smoker, you are an idiot, and you may lack the discipline and intelligence to be a successful entrepreneur.
Gene Simmons
Discipline is based on pride, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of the goal or the fear of failure.
Gary Ryan Blair
Develop discipline of self so that you do not have to decide and re-decide what you will do when you are confronted with the same temptation time and time again. You need only decide some things once.
Spencer W. Kimball
You can achieve almost any goal you set for yourself as long as you have the discipline to pay the price to do what you need to do and to never give up. You can make excuses or you can make progress. You choose.
Brian Tracy
You don’t know what order with freedom means! You only know what revolt against oppression is! You don’t know that the rod, discipline, violence, the state and government can only be sustained because of you and because of your lack of socially creative powers that develop order within liberty!
Gustav Landauer
An organisation can only carry out its mandate if there is discipline, and where there is no discipline there can be no real progress

Anna Deavere Smith
Compose with utter freedom and edit with utter discipline.
Erica Jong

Pattie Maes
As you gain more discipline over your body, you will find that a corollary discipline will develop in the mind because the two really go together.
Frederick Lenz
Any day we wish we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish; we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish; we can start a new activity. Any day we wish; we can start the process of life change. We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year.
Jim Rohn
Each form of the acting is different. I think it keeps your mind active. TV, film and theater are different disciplines, as are independent films, opposed to studio films. There are differences in the size and the genre, or a period drama as opposed to a contemporary drama, or the types of characters.
Luke Evans
Discipline weighs ounces and regret weighs tons
Jim Rohn
Discipline is not a restriction but an aid to freedom.
Wayne Thiebaud
Any asshole can chase a skirt, art takes discipline.
Charles Bukowski
Good design is a matter of discipline. It starts by looking at the problem and collecting all the available information about it. If you understand the problem, you have the solution. It’s really more about logic than imagination.
Massimo Vignelli
Let’s not be afraid to speak the common sense truth: you can’t have high standards without good discipline.
William Hague
The more you establish quiet time and mediation as part of your daily discipline, the more you go through the rotation into mirror (dream) worlds.
Stuart Wilde
Semiotics is in principle the discipline studying everything which can be used in order to lie. If something cannot be used to tell a lie, conversely it cannot be used to tell the truth: it cannot in fact be used “to tell” at all.
Umberto Eco
One of the great lessons I’ve learned in athletics is that you’ve got to discipline your life. No matter how good you may be, you’ve got to be willing to cut out of your life those things that keep you from going to the top.
Bob Richards
I was the baby of the family, but I was never babied, and that allowed me to take whatever artistic temperament I had and apply learned discipline. I was taught how to work. I think that’s everything. Creativity and imagination alone are not going to get you there.
Elizabeth Gilbert
You see, some lawyers have the talent, have the charisma, but no discipline. They come into court unprepared, without having done their research.
Nancy Grace
I don’t look at sports as something which merely tones up the body. I look at it as a tool of education that stimulates the mind and brings in a culture of discipline.
Narendra Modi

Julius Genachowski
In the great artist you see daring bound by discipline and discipline stretched by daring.
Robert Breault
We work a lot, and we have a lot of discipline because we are really tired that people know Colombia as a violent country. We just want to change that face of the country, and the music that we’re doing is the music that people want, that people love.

Janet Morris
Passion produces the best discipline.
Bill Johnson
You don’t get into the mood to create – it’s discipline.

Jimmy Nail
Sometimes discipline, which means “to teach,” is confused with criticism.
Susan W. Tanner
Do not bite at the bait of pleasure, till you know there is no hook beneath it.
Thomas Jefferson
Without the cross the Discipline of Confession would be merely therapeutic. But it is so much more. It involves an objective [a better word would have been “metaphysical”] change in our relationship with God and a subjective change in us. It is a means of healing and transforming the inner spirit.
Richard J. Foster
When families break down, you have a lot of repercussion from that, from poverty to crime to lack of discipline.
Tony Evans
It’s about discipline. It’s about following instructions. It’s about the execution of the plan. That’s what sport is.
Ian Millar
The universal elements are integrity, vision, discipline, passion, governed by conscience. Conscience has been educated through studying and pondering the universal, timeless principles of all six major world religions.
Stephen Covey
Any good business person applies financial discipline to everything they do. The movie business is and should be no different; I don’t believe you have to sacrifice creativity to have business success. To the contrary, great art requires discipline.
Paula Wagner
People are tired of liberty. They have had a surfeit of it. Liberty is no longer a chaste and austere virgin…. Today’s youth are moved by other slogans…Order, Hierarchy, Discipline.
Benito Mussolini
It may take a little self-discipline – be simple, be kind, stay rested. Attend to your own inner-health and happiness.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Girls who are dancers tend to be much better models than girls who just got picked off the street. Dance is a discipline, just like martial arts. No matter what you do, you have this sort of confidence that no one can take away from you – every time you step somewhere, you’re sure of where you’re going.
Milla Jovovich
Odor of blood when Christ was slain Made all Platonic tolerance vain And vain all Doric discipline.
William Butler Yeats
I have always said, ’40 is the new 20,’ and I truly believe that, but it for sure takes a lot of hard work, education, and discipline to keep it all together as we make our way to 50 and beyond.
Yolanda Hadid
When grandparents enter the door, discipline flies out the window.
Ogden Nash
I so admire the discipline, the work ethic, and the sacrifices fighters make to master all aspects of mixed martial arts.
Tami Hoag
And her [Eleanor Roosevelt] Grandmother Hall provided her really with a quite wonderful education, and a freedom that, within the framework of Tivoli (which is a framework of discipline and order) is also a very encouraging and loving one.
Blanche Wiesen Cook
When anyone can produce dreck or publish gibberish, and not only get away with it but be celebrated for it, the discipline is no longer a discipline, and it will get no respect.
Walter Darby Bannard
Without discipline, no matter how good you are, you are nothing! One day, and I might not be around; you’re going to meet a tough guy who takes your best shot. He’ll keep coming because he’s tough. Don’t get discouraged. That’s when the discipline comes in.
Mike Tyson
As ministers our greatest temptation is toward too many words.В  They weaken our faith and make us lukewarm.В  But silence is a sacred discipline, a guard of the Holy Spirit.
Henri Nouwen
Most true happiness comes from one’s inner life, from the disposition of the mind and soul. Admittedly, a good inner life is difficult to achieve, especially in these trying times. It takes reflection and contemplation and self-discipline.
William L. Shirer
Know this also to be one of the spiritual practices, a discipline for God – realisation. Its aim also is Self – realisation.
Swami Vivekananda
In combat sports, you should retire on top. That is very hard to do. I’m glad I had the discipline to do it.
Georges St-Pierre
Acting requires a lot of discipline to go with the obsession. It’s a path of knowledge, and of self-knowledge. Sometimes you get lost on the path. And then you find yourself again.
Toni Servillo
While the path to wealth is clearly marked, few are willing to adapt themselves to the modest discipline that the journey requires. Instead, most choose the shinier track of debt-driven consumption, which they find further along is covered in vines and thorns.
Benjamin Franklin
Modern Man is the victim of the very instruments he values most. Every gain in power, every mastery of natural forces, every scientific addition to knowledge, has proved potentially dangerous, because it has not been accompanied by equal gains in self-understanding and self-discipline.
Lewis Mumford
Without this tremendous passion for power, influence, and advantage which money gives, how could nature develop the highest type of man? Without this infinite longing, whence would come the discipline which industry, perseverance, tact, sagacity, and frugality give?

James Fisher
Mentally, I am quite good at self discipline.
Noel Edmonds

Matthew Kelly
Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
The history of the Jews has been written overwhelmingly by scholars of texts – understandably given the formative nature of the Bible and the Talmud. Seeing Jewish history through artifacts, architecture and images is still a young but spectacularly flourishing discipline that’s changing the whole story.
Simon Schama
Discipline isn’t a dirty word. Far from it. Discipline is the one thing that separates us from chaos and anarchy. Discipline implies timing. It’s the precursor to good behavior, and it never comes from bad behavior. People who associate discipline with punishment are wrong: with discipline, punishment is unnecessary.
Buck Brannaman
You don’t have to change that much for it to make a great deal of difference. A few simple disciplines can have a major impact on how your life works out in the next 90 days, let alone in the next 12 months or the next 3 years.
Jim Rohn
The discipline of creation, be it to paint, compose, write, is an effort towards wholeness.
Madeleine L’Engle
So I take my life as I find it, as a life full of grand advantages that are linked indissolubly to my noblest happiness and my everlasting safety. I believe that Infinite Love ordained it, and that, if I bow willingly, tractably, and gladly to its discipline, my Father will take care of it.
J. G. Holland
In your discipline, if doubt comes, let it come. You do your work and let doubt carry on with its work. And let us see which gives up first!
B.K.S. Iyengar
What it lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do.
There is one thing that gets you out of bed in the morning, and that is discipline. Because your dreams and your goals are not there waking up for you in the morning.
Jocko Willink
Discipline is doing what you are supposed to do in the best possible manner at the time you are supposed to do it.

Discipline is wisdom and vice versa.
M. Scott Peck
Karma grows from our hearts. Karma terminates from our hearts.
Gautama Buddha
Value investing is the discipline of buying shares at a significant discount from their current underlying values and holding them until more of their value is realised. The element of a bargain is the key to the process.
Seth Klarman
I learn more from creative people in other disciplines than I do even from other architects because I think they have a way of looking at the world that is really important.
Tom Kundig
The man who would emancipate art from discipline and reason is trying to elude rationality, not merely in art, but in all existence.
George Santayana
I have a relationship with God. I do believe in God, The Son, and Holy Ghost. But I respect everybody, and as far as the Muslims go, I like how they live because they have discipline. They have real structure and I like.
Tee Grizzley
You can’t be going through life expecting everything. You gotta have discipline.
Style begins by looking good naked. It’s a discipline. And if you don’t dress well every day, you lose the habit. It’s not about what you wear, but about how you live your life.
Oscar de la Renta
Ali was a guy that had a lot of discipline. If you hung around him, you’d be able to get some of that discipline that he had. And I learned from that. He was a sweet man.
Larry Holmes
Success is not a matter of mastering subtle, sophisticated theory but rather of embracing common sense with uncommon levels of discipline and persistence.
Patrick Lencioni
The legacies that parents and church and teachers left to my generation of Black children were priceless but not material: a living faith reflected in daily service, the discipline of hard work and stick-to-itiveness, and a capacity to struggle in the face of adversity.
Marian Wright Edelman
When the leader is morally weak and his discipline not strict, when his instructions and guidance are not enlightened, when there are no consistent rules, neighboring rulers will take advantage of this.
Sun Tzu
The important thing to recognize is that it takes a team, and the team ought to get credit for the wins and the losses. Successes have many fathers, failures have none.
Philip Caldwell
I have a great interest in a number of things, perhaps too many. I admire people who seem to concentrate on only one fixed discipline to the exclusion of almost everything else.
Tom Glazer
My own early experiences in war led me to suspect the value of discipline, even in that sphere where it is so often regarded as the first essential for success.
Herbert Read
Urban design as a discipline barely exists in most American and Canadian cities. In Singapore, there are innovative transportation strategies at work.
Moshe Safdie
As for the discipline, we [me and Frank Moore Cross] belong to two different disciplines. One involves research and archaeological materials. Mine is more interpretive. But it is the love for the text that is there, and that is what makes the whole adventure of reading and studying and sharing worthwhile.
Elie Wiesel
Football helped me tremendously, and that’s why I want the sport to stay because it’s so valuable. It’s helped me be a better physician today, certainly. I’ve learned discipline. I’ve learned focus, teamwork, communication.
Myron Rolle
Discipline allows you to trade effectively. You can take your ego out of it. You can go wrong 60, 70% of the time and still make a lot of money. If you ignore the discipline of managing risk, you have to be right 80% of the time or more, and I don’t know anyone who’s that good.
Larry Rosenberg
You absolutely must have the discipline not to hire until you find the right people.
James C. Collins
All religion teaches the virtues of love, altruism and patience, while showing us how to discipline and transform ourselves to achieve inner peace and a kind heart. Therefore, they are worthy of our respect.
Dalai Lama
As for discipline and rules, I confess, I’ve never been good with either.
Sylvia Day
Competing is exciting and winning is exhilarating, but the true prize will always be the self-knowledge and understanding that you have gained along the way.
Sebastian Coe
“Interactive Decision Theory” would perhaps be a more descriptive name for the discipline usually called Game Theory.
Robert Aumann
I’ve been on a faculty in a university, and I felt it was incumbent on me to deal with the Bible not as something I was attempting to convert people to, or to have them enter into my religious experience, but rather as an academic and scientific discipline.
Hershel Shanks
Your billion-dollar ideas don’t show up in the middle of dramatic distraction. They show up when you have the business and personal discipline to make space for your creative mind to flourish.
Robin S. Sharma
It’s not just self defense, it’s about…self control, body discipline, and mind discipline…and breath techniques. It involves yoga. It involves meditation. It’s an art, not a sport.
Elvis Presley
Self-discipline is crucial to a simpler, more contented life.
Dalai Lama
You always have to be available for people, and you have to be clearly stating what you want to see, in so many disciplines, all at the same time.
John Kahrs
I’m somebody who inspires by his own performances, by the way he conducts himself on and off the field. My discipline… I look to inspire by my actions, not just words.
Dinesh Karthik
I was made to work. If you are equally industrious, you will be equally successful.
Johann Sebastian Bach
Silence is one of the deepest Disciplines of the Spirit, simply because it puts the stopper on all self-justificat ion
Richard J. Foster
Design is about discipline and reality, not about fantasy beyond reality.
Albert Hadley
Wants awaken intellect. To gratify them disciplines intellect. The keener the want the lustier the growth.
Wendell Phillips
Any good business person applies financial discipline to everything they do.
Paula Wagner
The lack of monetary discipline has become a hallmark of unfettered globalization. Central banks have failed to provide a stable underpinning to world financial markets and to an increasingly asset-dependent global economy.
Stephen S. Roach
I don’t think there’s a lot of discipline right now.
Pau Gasol
Simulated disorder postulates perfect discipline; simulated fear postulates courage; simulated weakness postulates strength.
I believe that through knowledge and discipline, financial peace is possible for all of us.
Dave Ramsey
National elections have to be fought on who can ensure better national security, who can give us a sound economic system… ensure financial discipline… And this work can only be done by Narendra Modi.
Amit Shah
I do think that all economies need a sense of fiscal discipline especially over the midterm and if you are in the middle of a debt crisis you can’t borrow your way out of a debt crisis. That’s logically impossible.
Stephen Harper
I was able to work with two heads. If anything, doing ads and other commercial work were at least exercises in discipline.
Garry Winogrand
I write in a journal occasionally. But it is not a daily discipline for me.
Sue Monk Kidd
We don’t drift into good directions. We discipline and prioritize ourselves there.
Andy Stanley
The directing thing, to do it well, I think you have to have a hell of a lot more discipline than I do, or be a lot more willing to really take charge of whole large group of people than I feel comfortable doing – because a director really has to run everything, and be very confident in their ability to do so.
Janeane Garofalo
My dad was lackadaisical on the discipline front. I dropped out of everything at school.
Juliette Lewis
Without self-discipline, success is impossible, period.
Lou Holtz
One of the things about being a law student is that the academic discipline of law is very often removed from the practical reality of law. How to complain, who to complain to, and whether or not you even need to invoke the law is very different in the real world from how it’s examined in the lecture theatre.
Robert Rinder
It’s not just about winning or losing, but to learn about teamwork, learn about sportsmanship, learn about discipline. The value of working together for a common goal. Have the emphasis on fundamentals, not just games.
Erik Spoelstra
Beyond any role that I ever had, really early on as a stand-up, I would see actors decide to try it and they would bomb miserably. What I realized was that stand-up, acting and writing are all their own disciplines.
Patton Oswalt
I learned about the strength you can get from a close family life. I learned to keep going, even in bad times. I learned not to despair, even when my world was falling apart. I learned that there are no free lunches. And I learned the value of hard work.
Lee Iacocca
Numbers serve to discipline rhetoric. Without them it is too easy to follow flights of fancy, to ignore the world as it is and to remold it nearer the heart’s desire.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is felt that a disciplined mind leads to happiness and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering, and in fact it is said that bringing about discipline within one’s mind is the essence of the Buddha’s teaching.
Dalai Lama
Flair is a primitive kind of style. It is innate and cannot be taught. It can be polished and refined. When a person has flair, a grounding in the principle of design, and self-discipline, that person has the potential of being an outstanding designer.
Albert Hadley
My early years were hardly a model of focus, discipline, and direction. No one who met me as a teenager could have imagined my going into research and making important discoveries. No one could have predicted the arc of my career.
Craig Venter
Success is often the result of taking a misstep in the right direction.
Al Bernstein
It takes a certain type of man to become a boxer, to fight for a living. To be able to have the confidence to hit another man, to control your fears. You must overcome the psychical aspect and believe in the art, the discipline of the sport. You need to study. You need to be smart.
Anthony Joshua
I was not very well-behaved. I remember I was a discipline problem. I was a typical American male at twenty-years-old, and I was causing trouble whenever I could.
Peter DeLuise
I never met a person as determined as my mother. From working hard for six kids to just trying to keep the household down or maintain my father’s discipline, my dad, I’m so much like my father too. My father was so introverted, quiet, shy, nice. I got attributes from my father and mother.
Sugar Ray Leonard
Cycling is unique in that in any other sport I’d be in a different weight category or discipline. What I do is a different sport to what Chris Froome does.
Mark Cavendish
For me, the martial arts is a search for something inside. It’s not just a physical discipline.
Brandon Lee
A book is not a tweet. A book is not a half-hour television show. A book requires for both reader and writer sustained discipline attention. It asks you to immerse yourself in something and really deeply feel it.
Ben H. Winters
Discipline. Honour. Respect. This is why I appreciate MMA.
Houston Alexander
Bourne concentrated on rest and mobility. From somewhere in his forgotten past he understood that recovery depended upon both and he applied rigid discipline to both.
Robert Ludlum
There is only one kind of discipline, and that is the perfect discipline. As a leader, you must enforce and maintain that discipline; otherwise, you will fail at your job.
Vince Lombardi
Archaeology can be overlooked as a discipline, I think, but it’s incredibly important to have this other way of approaching the past – not just through historical documents, but through actual physical remains – objects, buildings and the layout of our towns.
Alice Roberts
The philosophy of fasting calls upon us to know ourselves, to master ourselves, and to discipline ourselves the better to free ourselves. To fast is to identify our dependencies, and free ourselves from them.
Tariq Ramadan
Creativity follows mastery, so mastery of skills is the first priority for young talent.
Benjamin Bloom
It is our continuing love for our children that makes us want them to become all they can be, and their continuing love for us that helps them accept healthy discipline–from us and eventually from themselves.
Fred Rogers
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Will Durant
That culture is a a critical resource the organization ignores. Competely mystifying. The organization continues to act as if culture were dark matter, something essentially inaccessible to us. When in fact there is an ancient discipline called anthropology that’s pretty good at thinking about it.
Grant David McCracken
We need to understand the difference between discipline and punishment. Punishment is what you do to someone; discipline is what you do for someone.
Zig Ziglar
Acceptance is such an important commodity, some have called it “the first law of personal growth”.
Peter McWilliams
No proceeding is better than that which you have concealed from the enemy until the time you have executed it. To know how to recognize an opportunity in war, and take it, benefits you more than anything else. Nature creates few men brave, industry and training makes many. Discipline in war counts more than fury.
Niccolo Machiavelli
You don’t have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream.
Michael Dell
Discipline yourself – so others don’t have to.
John Wooden
There are some centuries which – apart from everything else – in the art and other disciplines presume to remake everything because they know how to make nothing.
Giacomo Leopardi
In the United States, we spend millions of dollars on sports because it promotes teamwork, discipline, and the experience of learning to make great progress in small increments. Learning to play music does all this and more.
Linda Ronstadt
The party where humorless thought police work to enforce a rigid ideological discipline isn’t made up of Democrats. It comprises Republicans.
Jacob Weisberg
Improv is like writing. It’s actually a different discipline to acting. It helps acting greatly, but it’s completely different. It’s the same side of your brain when you write as when you improv.
Daniel Kaluuya
Sport has given me drive and discipline. It also taught me to remain humble.
Charlene, Princess of Monaco
The practice of thrift is not outdated. We must discipline ourselves to live within our incomes even if it means going without or making do. The wise person can distinguish…between basic needs and extravagant wants. Some find budgeting extremely painful, but I promise you, it is never fatal.
Marvin J. Ashton
I think art, the discipline of creating, really does require tremendous solitude. But the whole creative process can seal your life to such an extent that while you’re creating, you feel very self-sufficient. I’ve certainly experienced that.
Joyce Johnson
Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.
Richard P. Feynman
If you are not willing to work hard and establish discipline in your life, then all your dreams are merely pipe dreams.
Rick Pitino
Like all disciplines where information is shared and work contributes to their advancement, cuisine should be no different. The kitchen is our life, and we are available to share. We want to share our work so that future generations can cook and create a more efficient, easy and unquestionable quality.
Ferran Adria
From Fred Astaire I learned discipline and hard work.
Dirk Benedict
Freedom to a dancer means discipline. That is what technique is for — liberation.
Martha Graham
The most important lesson my parents taught me is that writing is a job, one that requires discipline and commitment. Most of the time it’s a fun job, a wonderful job, but sometimes it isn’t, and those are the days that test you.
Jesse Kellerman
Something in human nature causes us to start slacking off at our moment of greatest accomplishment. As you become successful, you will need a great deal of self-discipline not to lose your sense of balance, humility and commitment.
Ross Perot
Morale is not a single instinct. It has many ingredients. A sense of personal responsibility, the natural courage of an individual, the amount of his acquired self-discipline — and above all his interest in others — these together make up the spirit of morale.
Phyllis Bottome
Perfect retention. I don’t think I could do that-I’ve never disciplined myself to do it. I suppose a lot of it is a question of discipline. Which improvisation is not.
George Shearing
Discipline helps you finish a job, and finishing is what separates excellent work from average work.
Pat Summitt
I felt so nourished by the process of making [Moana], of you’re always engaged with other artists from different disciplines, and it’s about bringing your art form to the table. It’s so many art forms mashed together.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
Discipline is doing what you really don’t want to do so you can do what you really want to do.
Jeff Fisher
This is the world you live in when you’re a football player, an athlete. You want someone to discipline you. You want to have consistency. You want a guy that puts you in position so that you can have success.
Herm Edwards
Persistence and discipline. Without those two, you have nothing, no matter how talented you are.
Alrick Brown
Great leaders always have self-discipline -without exception.
John C. Maxwell
Staring prejudice in the face imposes a cruel discipline: to structure your anger, to achieve a certain dignity, an angry dignity.
Ellen Ullman
Perhaps the reward of the spirit who tries Is not the goal but the exercise.
Edmund Vance Cooke
Because I came into fame so early on, I’ve never done that. I don’t investigate through the Internet about people who I know in the same way that I think most people do because I know what that’s like to be on the other end of it. I think it gave me a certain kind of discipline, or empathy.
Penn Badgley
Acting is a different discipline. On stage I’m free to say what I please. But the change is very good for ya.
Billy Connolly
I often say that paying off your debt is like dieting. There are no miracle cures; it takes discipline and hard work.
Lisa Madigan
The difference between punishment and discipline is a powerful child.
Danny Silk
Although in society in general, the idea of an Irish composer of ‘classical music’, or whatever you want to call it, is still a strange item, generally speaking. Even in the arts, among our fellow creative artists in other disciplines, you still feel slightly out of it.
John Kinsella
It sounds simple telling people to work hard and never quit, but to really execute and demonstrate those principles takes discipline and faith. Those are the two factors that I believe separate the good from the great, the successes from the failures.
Nipsey Hussle
Re raising kids: Love, without discipline, isn’t.
Malcolm Forbes
Jazz took too much discipline. You have to come in at the right place, which is different than me singing the blues, where I can sing, ‘Oh, baby,’ if there’s a pause in the melody. With jazz, you better leave that space open, or put in something real cool.
Etta James
Success is actually a short race-a sprint fueled by discipline just long enough for habit to kick in and take over.
Gary W. Keller
The army influences everything I do. Certainly it teaches you discipline, which is a necessary element of development. I think there’s more of a collaborative understanding in the band because of that.
Maynard James Keenan
There is a certain combination of anarchy and discipline in the way I work.
Robert De Niro
We can become the masters of our own destinies by practicing self-discipline and by setting worthy goals that will lead to higher ground so that we can become what our heavenly father wants us to become.
M. Russell Ballard
It is one of the strange ironies of this strange life that those who work the hardest, who subject themselves to the strictest discipline, who give up certain pleasurable things in order to achieve a goal, are the happiest.
Brutus Hamilton
Music gives us a language that cuts across the disciplines, helps us to see connections and brings a more coherent meaning to our world.
Ernest L. Boyer
From getting good grades when I was growing up to finishing college to respecting my elders to the discipline that I have – everything can go back to martial arts.
Tecia Torres
The Federal Reserve has always recognized the importance of allowing markets to work, and government oversight of financial firms will never be fully effective without the aid of strong market discipline.
Ben Bernanke
Painting is as difficult as brain surgery. It’s not that relaxing. But that’s the discipline.
Jamie Wyeth
The discipline of suffering, of great suffering – do you not know that it is this discipline alone that has produced all the elevations of humanity so far?
Friedrich Nietzsche
Freedom begins way back. It begins not with doing what you want but with doing what you ought – that is, with discipline.
Elisabeth Elliot
The Marines gave me a really strong sense of discipline and a work ethic that kicks in at my job.
Drew Carey
Discipline is the whole key to being successful. We all get 24 hours each day. That’s the only fair thing; it’s the only thing that’s equal. What we do with those 24 hours is up to us.
Sam Huff
The more the capacity to concentrate is developed, the more often the profound tranquility in work is achieved, then the clearer will be the manifestation of discipline within the child.
Maria Montessori
Wealth is more often the result of a lifestyle of hard work, perseverance, planning, and, most of all, self-discipline.
Thomas J. Stanley
I was scared before every battle. That old instinct of self-preservation is a pretty basic thing, but while the action was going on some part of my mind shut off and my training and discipline took over. I did what I had to do.
Audie Murphy
There are certain characteristics that define a good chimp mother. She is patient, she is protective but she is not over-protective – that is really important. She is tolerant, but she can impose discipline. She is affectionate. She plays. And the most important of all: she is supportive.
Jane Goodall
Whether it’s a letter, song lyrics, part of a novel, or instructions on how to fix a kitchen sink, it’s writing. You keep your craft honed, you acquire the discipline to finish things. You turn into a self-taskmaster.
Jimmy Buffett
Kids will come into my boxing gym with no discipline, and then you teach them how to focus and love what they’re doing, which then travels outside into their home and work life.
Tamer Hassan
People seem to be looking for discipline in a topsy-turvy world.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Talent is the discipline, commitment, and willpower to practice/train/study often, long, and hard. Discover your passion and pay the price.
Bradford Winters
The reason we need to have a gold and silver based currency is to bring discipline to the financial system so the government can’t go out and do all sorts of bad things.
Bernard von NotHaus
If I could have the discipline to be super-skinny, I would be.
Lara Stone
Tony Horton
The discipline of desire is the background of character.
John Locke
There’s nothing like the discipline of having to work on a cold film set on the Danubian plain in Bulgaria. Boy, does it get cold.
John Rhys-Davies
Of course, every artist has ‘minor works’ that they do, but I don’t think I have any ‘minor disciplines.’ Each discipline I approach as a major undertaking that I put my whole self into.
Patti Smith
Six hours a day I lived under school discipline in active intercourse with people none of whom were known to those at home, and the other hours of the twenty-four I spent at home, or with relatives of the people at home, none of whom were known to anybody at school.
Georg Brandes
The student develops an analytical as well as finely blended character. He is able to choose from a wide variety of job fields from which to embrace a career, without having to be a specialist in one particular discipline.
Philippe Perrin
We need to focus on issues where we all agree, which is spending discipline and control and making sure that government, both in Springfield and in Washington, doesn’t take more from your family budget.
Mark Kirk
I do not believe that the present flowering of science is due in the least to a real appreciation of the beauty and intellectual discipline of the subject. It is due simply to the fact that power, wealth and prestige can only be obtained by the correct application of science.
Derek Barton
Knowledge has the form of a tree, and since metaphysics is the most fundamental one of the theoretical disciplines, it represents the roots of the tree.
Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra
Give regularly. Stewardship is not a once-a-year consideration, but a week-to-week, month-to-month commitment requiring discipline and consistency.
Randy Alcorn
There is a lore simple and sure, that asks no discipline of weary years–the language of the soul, told through the eye.
Lydia Sigourney
The price of discipline is always less than the pain of regret.
Nido R Qubein
Every human should have the idea of taking care of the environment, of nature, of water. So using too much or wasting water should have some kind of feeling or sense of concern. Some sort of responsibility and with that, a sense of discipline.
Dalai Lama
An essential part of true listening is the discipline of bracketing, the temporary giving up or setting aside of one’s own prejudices, frames of reference and desires so as to experience as far as possible the speaker’s world from the inside, step in inside his or her shoes.
M. Scott Peck
Compassion does not just happen. Pity does, but compassion is not pity. It’s not a feeling. Compassion is a viewpoint, a way of life, a perspective, a habit that becomes a discipline – and more than anything else, compassion is a choice we make that love is more important than comfort or convenience.
Glennon Doyle Melton
There are great disciplines from being a sportsman that you can transfer into being an artist. The preparation, the sacrifice, the constant desire to improve.
Matt Smith
It is intelligence that brings order, not discipline.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
The Great Commission to go into all the world is not only geographical, but must include every field, profession, discipline, sport, etc.
Rick Joyner
As a graduate student at Oxford in 1963, I began writing about books in revolutionary France, helping to found the discipline of book history. I was in my academic corner writing about Enlightenment ideals when the Internet exploded the world of academic communication in the 1990s.
Robert Darnton
Your ability to discipline yourself to set clear goals, and then to work toward them every day, will do more to guarantee your success than any other single factor.
Brian Tracy
Be polite to all, friendly to none. Be professional. Be ready to kill everyone and everything.
Janet Morris
No production of high ideological and artistic value can evolve out of a creative group whose members are not united ideologically and in which discipline and order have not been established.
Kim Jong Il
I was educated by the nuns. Guilt and discipline В— combine those and you’ll be pretty productive.
Nora Roberts
Close to the Edge, Red, One of a kind, Discipline, Earthworks, The Sound of Surprise, all seem to me to be albums that captured the essence of the intention.
Bill Bruford
You are a product of your environment. So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyze your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success – or are they holding you back?
W. Clement Stone
Our nuclear scientists and engineers have done a splendid job, and naturally, the entire nation has risen to salute their professional excellence, discipline, and patriotism. They have had the benefit of having been led in the past by great men like Homi Bhabha and Vikram Sarabhai.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
Well, let’s distinguish religion from spirituality. I am Catholic, so religion for me is a way of having discipline and collective worship with persons who share the same mystery.
Paulo Coelho
You exorcise the things that haunt you. That’s one good thing about any artistic discipline.
Diego Luna
The poor are prevented from thinking by the discipline of others, the rich by their own.
Theodor W. Adorno
Jesus didn’t live alone. He had Peter, John, and James around him. There were the Twelve and the other disciples. They formed circles of intimacy around Jesus. We too need these circles of intimacy, but it’s a discipline.
Henri Nouwen
All change begins with a DECISION. Once the decision is made, DISCIPLINE becomes the bridge between desire and accomplishment.
A. R. Bernard
The battle for self-discipline may leave you a bit bruised and battered but always a better person.
Thomas S. Monson
Discipline is what you use when you don’t want to do something, when you have to force yourself.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
A healthy person is not perfect but perfectible, not a done deal but a work in progress. Staying healthy takes discipline, work, and patience, which is why our life is a journey and perforce a heroic one.
David Richo
The two seem, at first glance, to be opposed, but when you have advanced a little in both, you find that concentration learned in Yoga is of immense use in attaining the mental powers necessary in Magick; on the other hand, the discipline of Magick is of the greatest service in Yoga.
Aleister Crowley
It has been said that the great scientific disciplines are examples of giants standing on the shoulders of other giants. It has also been said that the software industry is an example of midgets standing on the toes of other midgets.
Alan Cooper
My message to you all is of hope, courage and confidence. Let us mobilize all our resources in a systematic and organized way and tackle the grave issues that confront us with grim determination and discipline worthy of a great nation.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
If you’ve ever tried meditation and didn’t stay with it, I recommend you try it again. Some time has passed. In the interim, you may have developed the discipline of mind or the patience you were short on before. Let these qualities aid your practice. (173)
Victoria Moran
If you once turn on your side after the hour at which you ought to rise, it is all over. Bolt up at once.
Walter Scott
Discipleship is a daily discipline; we follow Jesus a step at a time, a day at a time
Warren W. Wiersbe
At sixty I look back on a life of deep disappointments, of withered hopes, of unlooked for suffering, of severe discipline.
Sarah Moore Grimke
Dogs who chase cars evidently see them as large, unruly ungulates badly in need of discipline and shepherding.
Elizabeth Marshall Thomas
If you have self-respect, you will take satisfaction in being well groomed and will not allow yourself to perform shabbily. You will continue to work toward high standards and goals to serve others, to continue and to practice self-discipline. You will not compromise your standards or beliefs.
Marvin J. Ashton
The ultimate goal of discipline is to teach self discipline.
Pat Summitt
Discipline is the soul of an army.
George Washington
I was fortunate, I guess, to be part of some good fiscal discipline in the Bush administration. The budget I put forward was a balanced budget.
Rob Portman
Where do new ideas come from? The answer is simple: differences. While there are many theories of creativity, the only tenet they all share is that creativity comes from unlikely juxtapositions. The best way to maximize differences is to mix ages, cultures, and disciplines.
Nicholas Negroponte
When I hear traditional family values raised, I hear that effort once again to re-establish the man as head and master of his family. Who had the, not only the right, but the obligation to discipline his wife and children to keep them in line?
Patricia Ireland
Speak, Lord”; make time to listen. Chastening is more than a means of discipline, it is meant to get me to the place of saying, “Speak, Lord.”
Oswald Chambers
All great leaders have understood that their number one responsibility is cultivating their own discipline and personal growth. Those who cannot lead themselves cannot lead others.
John C. Maxwell
If you say you want to automate cars and save people’s lives, the skills you need for that aren’t taught in any particular discipline. I know – I was interested in working on automating cars when I was a Ph.D. student in 1995.
Larry Page
I don’t think I have discipline when it comes to anything.
Brian K. Vaughan
There is no difference between a hero and a coward in what they feel. It’s what they do that makes them different. The hero and the coward feel exactly the same, but you have to have the discipline to do what a hero does and to keep yourself from doing what the coward does.
Cus D’Amato
Without discipline, there is no Marine Corps.
R. Lee Ermey
If surrealism ever comes to adopt a particular line of moral conduct, it has only to accept the discipline that Picasso has accepted and will continue to accept.
Andre Breton
You work with every actor differently. It’s like if you’re a mother, if you have children, some children need more discipline. Other children, you back off of a little bit and let them be. It’s the same way with actors. Some actors need a lot of hand holding. Other actors like to be let be, and you let them go.
Rob Reiner
The very purpose of meditation is to discipline the mind and reduce afflictive emotions.
Dalai Lama
I’m working on a new creator-owned series for Vertigo called ‘The Discipline.’
Peter Milligan
Discipline is built by consistently performing small acts of courage.
Robin Sharma
I tell young teachers who are determined to dissent from some of the Draconian aspects of the current orthodoxy that the best form of protection is to be incredibly good at what you do and keep good discipline in class.
Jonathan Kozol
In search of a complete education with the ideals of trust, faith, understanding and compassion, many families are turning to the structure, discipline and academic standards of Catholic schools.
Mark Foley
I think that all things which evoke discipline: study, and our duties to men and to the commonwealth, war, and personal hardship, and even the need for subsistence, ought to be greeted by us with profound gratitude, for only through them can we attain to the least detachment; and only so can we know peace.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
You can rear children in an antagonistic environment or in a facilitative one with a good combination of love and discipline. It’s about supporting them, and recognizing achievements and contributions, but also saying, “that’s fantastic but it’s not enough, here’s the next thing.”
Christiana Figueres
Discipline, Norah. If you’re going to taunt them, remember to stick out your tongue.
James A. Owen
Besides pride, loyalty, discipline, heart, and mind, confidence is the key to all the locks.
Joe Paterno
It is clear that history differs from the other disciplines in having
an approach and not an area of its own.
Leonard Krieger
Perhaps nothing helps us make the movement from our little selves to a larger world than remembering God in gratitude. Such a perspective puts God in view in all of life, not just in the moments we set aside for worship or spiritual disciplines. Not just in the moments when life seems easy.
Henri Nouwen
It takes about 6 hours of practice a day for quite a few years to become a professional juggler. I started when I was 14 and that discipline has helped me immensely as a performer.
Jeff Raz
Companies which get misled by their own success are sure to be blind sided.
Warren G. Bennis
I won’t say I am a strict mother, but discipline is important. Timing and routine are important for kids.
Karisma Kapoor
Unfortunately, too many public school officials believe that cameras are needed to enforce order and discipline.
Paul Weyrich
I’m tremendously optimistic about the future of my discipline, yet understanding the brain is so difficult that we neuroscientists need help.
Sebastian Seung
I’ve talked a lot about the discipline and high, high skills of the British actors as seen from my Danish point of view. But I also have to say that Peter is unusually intelligent, humble and a good friend to everyone.
Lone Scherfig
Work, especially good work, becomes easy only when desire has learnt to discipline itself.
Rabindranath Tagore
But we need to pray daily for humility and honesty to see these sinful attitudes for that they really are, and then for grace and discipline to root them out of our minds and replace them with thoughts pleasing to God.
Jerry Bridges
I have this view that losing weight is easy, keeping it off is hard because keeping it off is the discipline.
Barry O’Farrell
I’ve used my time at ‘GH’ to learn some discipline.
Nathan Parsons
…as far as self-discipline goes, it’s still ultimately up to me how well I can push myself. Only I can do that. I just have to keep on going, keep on working, keep on improving.
Sheryl Swoopes
There can be no true discipline without love…only compliance.
Wes Fesler
I would rather be the good aunt who never says anything bad and lets the parents discipline the child.
Ellen DeGeneres
The military is a place of discipline, technical proficiency, and personal sacrifice for the greater good.
Tammy Duckworth
It is not until science has become a discipline to which the research ability of any mind from any class in society can be attracted that it can become rigorously scientific.
Margaret Mead
Environmentalism isn’t a discipline or specialty. It’s a way of seeing our place in the world. And we need everybody to see the world that way. Don’t think ‘In order to make a difference I have to become an environmentalist.’
David Suzuki
Do you know what separates adults from children? Self-discipline. We don’t want to go to work, we don’t want to do our chores, and we don’t want to make unpleasant decisions, but we do all those things because we’re aware of the consequences which will follow if we don’t.
Ilona Andrews
Design isn’t Art. It’s not about creating beautiful or thought-provoking things for the sake of it. Design is a discipline creating communication with a purpose.
Ben Hunt
A bigot is a person who makes an idol of his commitments.
Howard Thurman
While everyone exercises influence, the size and strength of our influence depends upon our effort.В  No one leads well without paying the price of discipline.В  As we push ourselves to grow and to learn, we enlarge our sphere of influence.
John C. Maxwell
To me thinking outside the box means; crossing disciplines and pulling in expertise and perspective from outside of the standard boundaries.
Dror Benshetrit
In peace-armies discipline meant the hunt, not of an average but of an absolute; the hundred per cent standard in which the ninety-nine were played down to the level of the weakest man on parade…. The deeper the discipline, the lower was the individual excellence; also the more sure the performance.
T. E. Lawrence
You have to look in the mirror and really have an honest conversation with yourself and find the discipline to not eat things that don’t agree with you.
Big Show
A defining reality for me is what Scripture teaches in Hebrews 12, that God is our father, and that a sign that he loves us is that he disciplines us, he takes us through hardship to build character in us that could not be shaped apart from difficulty.
Joshua Harris
This bridge will take you halfway there – the last few steps you will have to take yourself.
Shel Silverstein
The police officers, so far as discipline, organization, pay, and orders were concerned, came exclusively under the German Reich police system and were in no way connected with the administration of the Government General.
Hans Frank
I’ve never been in a business where safety performance was excellent and the business performance was not, so they go hand in hand, and for me, safety performance is an indication of discipline, of focus and of how joined up an organization is.
Cynthia Carroll
The bridge between wishing and accomplishing is discipline.
Harvey Mackay
I think that we already have a really good system in town, but I have a vision that it could be even better. My vision is that academic excellence is the area that we should pursue more, coupled with fiscal discipline.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Talent is cheap. What really matters is discipline.
Andre Dubus
What we should be doing [in US] is accelerating every year our efforts to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, have a cleaner energy future, have much more energy conservation. And this won’t hurt anybody. This will create a new economy for America, if we’ve got the discipline to do it.
William J. Clinton
It’s quite a discipline when we’re in trouble to think of God and say, “I need some help.”
Harold Klemp

The price of excellence is discipline. The cost of mediocrity is disappointment.
William Arthur Ward
In 2004, one of my books, ‘Whale Talk,’ was chosen as an all-school read in Fowlerville, Michigan, a rural town not far from Detroit. They had done what I thought was a brilliant and innovative thing: decided to teach the book in every discipline, sophomores through seniors.
Chris Crutcher
Since the Middle Ages, people have been writing about angels. Angelology was actually at one point a scholastic discipline.
Danielle Trussoni
It’s easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you’re a winner, when you’re number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you’re not a winner.
Vince Lombardi
I grew up not having a father. Golf is the father I never had. It taught me honesty and respect and discipline and it taught me to control my temperament.
George Lopez
Many people don’t understand how disciplined you have to be to play jazz… And that is really the idea of democracy – freedom within the Constitution or discipline. You don’t just get out there and do anything you want.
Dave Brubeck
Every problem contains a solution. The key is self-discipline and surrender of the mental habits to the Holy Spirit.
Harold Klemp

Dallas Willard
When I look into the future and where I’d like to live, I’ll say Germany because I grew up there and like the discipline the people have. But my background is from Zonguldak in Turkey. I’m there a lot.
Mesut Ozil
With self-discipline most anything is possible. Theodore Roosevelt Rule your mind or it will rule you.
Yoga uses the body to discipline the mind and to reach the soul.
B.K.S. Iyengar
Move only when you have an advantage. It’s very basic. You have to understand the odds and have the discipline to bet only when the odds are in your favor.
Charlie Munger
One doesn’t become a soldier in a week – it takes training, study and discipline. There is no question that the finest Army in the world is found in the United States.
Daniel Inouye
COURAGE is not a quality you teach. Courage is the by-product of self-discipline. It is an ATTITUDE.
Gerry Lindgren
Nobody phrases it this way, but I think that artificial intelligence is almost a humanities discipline. It’s really an attempt to understand human intelligence and human cognition.
Sebastian Thrun
We speak, indeed, of the wrath of God. We do not, however, assert that it indicates any passion on His part, but that it is something which is assumed in order to discipline by stern means those sinners who have committed many and grievous sins.
You cannot be disciplined in great things and undisciplined in small things.
George S. Patton
All religions teach one basic discipline – the removal from the mind of the blemish of egoism, of running after little joys.
Sathya Sai Baba

Dean Koontz
I think the main thing is trying to be fair, sometimes there has to be a little bit of discipline, maybe even punishment involved in trying to make your child understand, learn from bad experiences and make sure they don’t happen again.
Archie Manning
Those who take knowledge to be a whole zoo of sub-disciplines will react to my giving metaphysics a privileged position in that zoo or to my thinking of knowledge as a tree, with more and less fundamental parts.
Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra
These are the six ways of courting defeat – neglect to estimate the enemy’s strength; want of authority; defective training; unjustifiable anger; nonobservance of discipline; failure to use picked men.

Sally Phillips
In the last analysis, our only freedom is the freedom to discipline ourselves.
Bernard Baruch
It is not secret here in Congress we have not had the discipline in many instances to keep our hands out of the cookie jar of Social Security. Now to stop this I propose that in the future that Congress cannot get its hands on the money in the first place.
Jeff Miller
I then wrought at my trade as a tailor; carefully attended meetings for worship and discipline; and found an enlargement of gospel love in my mind, and therein a concern to visit Friends in some of the back settlements of Pennsylvania and Virginia.
John Woolman
Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience. Precepts and instruction are useful so far as they go, but, without the discipline of real life, they remain of the nature of theory only.
Samuel Smiles
All those who have played with me are aware that I am very strict when it comes to discipline and punctuality.
Sandeep Singh
The sterner the discipline, the greater the devotion.

I believe in previous lives and the Muse—and that books and music exist before they are written and that they are propelled into material being by their own imperative to be born, via the offices of those willing servants of discipline, imagination and inspiration whom we call artists.
Steven Pressfield
I’m a grazer by nature – fruit, nuts – but I try to discipline myself and sit down for regular meals when the girls are around, as I want to instil good habits in them.
Darcey Bussell
Putting prize-fighting altogether aside as one of the unavoidable evils attending on this manly exercise, the inestimable value of boxing as a training, discipline, and development of boys and young men remains.
John Boyle O’Reilly
In the 1970s, as historians became enchanted with microhistories, economists were expanding the reach of their discipline. Nations, states and cities began to plan for the future by consulting with economists whose prognostications were shaped by investment cycles rather than historical ones.
Annalee Newitz
Repetitiveness and discipline are the secrets of cake decorating. The art comes from the meticulous technique, the way it does for a dancer.
Ron Ben-Israel
William Armstrong is a great teacher. He speaks truthfullyabout the discipline required for learning, and about the pleasures oforder and system in acquiring knowledge. Any reader, of any age, will enjoythis book.
Jill Ker Conway
I believe there are so many other disciplines and themes that we still haven’t explored yet. It’s infinite what we can apply our creativity to.
Guy Laliberte
Creativity seldom thrives in an atmosphere of great discipline or scrutiny. That’s one reason we tend not to want our leaders to get too creative.

Edward James Olmos

Ram Nath Kovind
The discipline as a dancer carried over into my life.
Phyllis Smith
I think most of my lessons come from sports. That’s why I always emphasise to young kids to get involved in sports because it’s where you learn about discipline. It’s where you learn to keep going, where if you think you can’t make it, you can.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
He that cannot obey, cannot command.
Benjamin Franklin

To not say all that can be said is the secret of discipline and economy.

Our greatest individual challenge in life is self-discipline. The self-discipline of a healthy diet, daily exercise, controlling our thoughts, selflessly serving others, and living a life of integrity.
Bradford Winters
It’s just different discipline, just doing the voice over. I guess I’ve done about 5 or 6 audio books in the past and I do the animated voice for a show called Fatherhood on Nickelodeon.
Blair Underwood
I’m sure that at no point in my life could I ever have shown the kind of focus and discipline and commitment necessary to work a station at elBulli or Le Bernardin. No. That ain’t me.
Anthony Bourdain
Discipline divorced from wisdom is not true discipline, but merely the meaningless following of custom, which is only a disguise for stupidity.
Rabindranath Tagore
There’s a level of discipline I use as a writer, designed to get better at what I’m doing, that requires quite a lot of study and quite a lot of hard work as well.
PJ Harvey
There is one prevailing key to success. Do what you resolve to do. Then you’ll be a success. If you can discipline yourself to follow through on your promises to yourself, your self-esteem goes up. Persistence is self-discipline in action. Self-discipline is the foundation of self-confidence .
Brian Tracy
As a dancer, I’d dance with broken toes. Just like acting, you compete with yourself and drive forward. That discipline helped in Hollywood.
Jaime Pressly
The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.
Vince Lombardi
Leaders aren’t born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
Vince Lombardi
If you read Bernard Hopkins’ name in the dictionary, the definition would be ‘discipline.’
Bernard Hopkins
When you’re doing that you lose your focus on the discipline of the business, and how you train people at Hamburger University, and everybody gets on a bigger, different vision, and they’re not on the same page.
Jim Cantalupo
You must never be satisfied with losing. You must get angry, terribly angry, about losing. But the mark of the good loser is that he takes his anger out on himself and not his victorious opponents or on his teammates.
Richard M. Nixon
It takes discipline not to let social media steal your time.
Alexis Ohanian
Next to the intellectual stimulation of chess, the educational value is of great importance. Chess teaches logic, imagination, self-discipline, and determination.
Garry Kasparov
Before Vatican II, in theology, as in other areas, the discipline was fixed. After the council there has been a revolution – a chaotic revolution – with free discussion on everything. There is now no common theology or philosophy as there was before.
Godfried Danneels
Education is not a discipline at all. Half vocational, half emptiness dressed up in garments borrowed from philosophy, psychology, literature.
Edward Blishen
There are plenty of good people, but only a very, very few are precise and disciplined.
Anton Chekhov
The discipline, particularly in these urban schools for the poor, it’s not controlled by the administration – they’re controlled by the police. This is an expression of a racist logic that has now seeped directly into schools.
Henry Giroux
My father was slower, but he was severer than my mother, who was quick but light and irregular in discipline.
Lincoln Steffens
Mr. Bergman was a man of great working discipline. He forced everyone to concentrate when it was important. No disturbing noise during rehearsal. A code of silence.
Max von Sydow
Real love” – “This kind of love is emotional in nature but not obsessional. It is a love that unites reason and emotion. It involves an act of the will and requires discipline, and it recognizes the need for personal growth.
Gary Chapman
I haven’t got a writer’s discipline.
Jim Broadbent
Dance has helped me with everything. It was a great foundation for discipline, hard work and, unfortunately, the ever-elusive idea of perfection. It lends itself easily to fight choreography, because that’s what it really is. Choreography. And knowing how to move with someone.
Keri Russell
When members unite with the church, they should not only make a profession of faith in Christ (that is essential), but in light of 2 Corinthians 10:6 and Hebrews 13:17, etc., they should also agree to submit to the authority and discipline of the church, should they be found delinquent in doctrine or life.
Jay Adams
Goals on the road to achievement cannot be achieved without discipline and consistency.
Denzel Washington

Danny Dyer
No one likes to fail. But we mortals do not become champions without effort and discipline or without making mistakes.

Henri Nouwen
Discipline in the spiritual life is the concentrated effort to create the space and time where God can become our master and where we can respond freely to God’s guidance.
Henri Nouwen
I’ve never been able to accept any kind of discipline.
Lee Marvin
The arts are statistically proven to increase independent thinking, creativity, discipline, balance, and academic improvement in children.

David Foster Wallace
Online chess is very popular and cool, don’t get me wrong, but it is a different discipline.
Anish Giri
Poetry, I feel, is a tyrannical discipline. You’ve got to go so far so fast in such a small space; you’ve got to burn away all the peripherals.
Sylvia Plath
I learned discipline from my father. Not in terms of corporal punishment, but being determined in whatever you do, and sticking with it.
Ryan Reynolds
I was very good in math and physics. In the Soviet time, we had a lot of Olympic-style competitions for different disciplines: I was always winning in my region.
Oleg Deripaska
It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.
Zig Ziglar
The discipline of fasting breaks you out of the world’s routine.
Jentezen Franklin
Brave is the lion tamer, brave is the world subduer, but braver is the one who has subdued himself.
Johann Gottfried Herder
Sacrifice, discipline and prayer are essential. We gain strength through God’s word. We receive grace from the sacrament. And when we fumble due to sin – and it’s gonna happen – confession puts us back on the field.
Lou Holtz
With prayer, you may be able to start one discipline or habit that will overflow into many more positive, God-honoring traits.
Craig Groeschel
If you want to make good use of your time, you’ve got to know what’s most important and then give it all you’ve got.
Lee Iacocca
Discipline is knowing what you’re supposed to do and doing it as best you can… On third down and short yardage, the Raiders don’t jump offside. That’s discipline – not a coat and tie, not a clean shave.
John Madden
Your philosophy determines whether you will go for the disciplines or continue the errors.
Jim Rohn
An army formed of good officers moves like clockwork; but there is no situation upon earth less enviable, nor more distressing, than that person’s who is at the head of troops which are regardless of order and discipline.
George Washington
I think passion gives you the energy to do what is right, and discipline makes sure you do what is right. So I look at them as kind of cousins maybe.
John C. Maxwell
Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it. Far the greatest things grow by God’s law out of the smallest. But to live your life, you must discipline it.
Florence Nightingale
Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.

Wilferd Peterson
Morality, like physical cleanliness, is not acquired once and for all: it can only be kept and renewed by a habit of constant watchfulness and discipline.
Victoria Ocampo
By virtue of some of the ways the game is played, in terms of message discipline, in terms of access for reporters, and especially in the way that sources and subjects, especially famous subjects, treat the media, almost by default there’s more news that’s falling into books.
Ron Suskind
I’ve raised my boys the old-fashioned way, with spankings, sending them upstairs if they misbehave at parties, the works. I believe discipline is the proof of love.
Jerry Lewis
If you do not master the art of self discipline- you will succumb to the emotions and reality of regret.
John Assaraf
Let me… remind you that it is only by working with an energy which is almost superhuman and which looks to uninterested spectators like insanity that we can accomplish anything worth the achievement. Work is the keystone of a perfect life. Work and trust in God.
Woodrow Wilson
And so if your competitors aren’t growing, if there isn’t a competitive reason to grow, and you want focus and discipline to add customers to existing stores, you adjust your strategy.
Jim Cantalupo
My first cassette was ‘Synchronicity,’ and my first CD was U2 ‘War’ and King Crimson ‘Discipline.’
Christopher McCulloch
Build your inner environment. Practice Silence! I remember the wonderful discipline of the Great Ones. When we used to talk and chatter, they would say: “Go back into your inner castle.” It was very hard to comprehend then, but now I understand the way of peace
Paramahansa Yogananda
God’s loving discipline brings us face-to-face with our pride.
Max Anders
Of course, I don’t know everything. Considering the infinite amount of knowledge that one could acquire in a virtually innumerable array of intellectual disciplines, it’s probably more accurate to say that I don’t know anything.
Dean Koontz
The world is much more interesting than any one discipline.
Edward Tufte
You must have discipline to have fun.
Julia Child
An athlete gains so much knowledge by just participating in a sport. Focus, discipline, hard work, goal setting and, of course, the thrill of finally achieving your goals. These are all lessons in life.
Kristi Yamaguchi
I thank the Creator of the universe to have discovered the discipline of music was the greatest gift that I could have been given, the possibility to be a student working in the world.
Anthony Braxton
The belief that unhappiness is selfless and happiness is selfish is misguided. It’s more selfless to act happy. It takes energy, generosity, and discipline to be unfailingly lighthearted.
Gretchen Rubin
And we have got to go back – I will tell you what we have got to do. We have got to go back to the small disciplines that really make a difference in defining ourselves as a profession. And we will.
Martin Dempsey
Maybe the discipline in North America is just consolidation, right? I mean, it may be that if there were more vigorous pursuit of antitrust in America, there would have more competitors competing on price, and then airlines wouldn’t be making any money again.
Paul Solman
It’s been an obsession of various genres, disciplines, and aspects and elements of movie-making. It’s always been something that I’ve really aspired to, so doing something new and different, reinventing myself and working with new people is just the passport to the amazing world that is the movies.
David Gordon Green
Anyone who has brought up children knows that consistency has absolutely nothing to do with discipline.
Bill Cosby
A whole series of events pushed me towards meditation, and now it’s become such an integral part of the way I manage myself. It’s a tool for me; when you’re an entrepreneur, and you’re pulled in every direction, it is wonderful to have this discipline.
Imran Amed
The key to willpower is “want-power”. If U want something strongly enough, U will find the discipline necessary to do it.
Douglas Merrill
Without boxing, because of my neighborhoods, who knows what would have happened to me. It was always about following the leader. And I definitely was not a leader. Boxing gave me discipline; a sense of self. It made me more outspoken. It gave me more confidence.
Sugar Ray Leonard
If school principals have given up on the important things and are focusing on discipline, they are creating a certain, diluted reality. In an organization that functions properly, discipline should be a marginal issue.
Itay Talgam
The arts significantly boost student achievement, reduce discipline problems, and increase the odds students will go on to graduate from college.
Arne Duncan
The ability to discipline yourself to delay gratification in the short term in order to enjoy greater rewards in the long term, is the indispensable prerequisite for success.
Brian Tracy
It’s mental discipline that sets one apart, the ability to think differently and to generate energy in the right direction.
Sachin Tendulkar
Talent is insignificant. I know a lot of talented ruins. Beyond talent lie all the usual words: discipline, love, luck, but, most of all, endurance.
James A. Baldwin
If we are silent when we should speak, we are not living the Discipline of silence. If we speak when we should be silent, we again miss the mark.
Richard J. Foster
Members of royal families are born into a world of indulgence and entitlement, and the princelings who grow up that way may never have to develop any discipline.
Nancy Gibbs
The budget caps were busted, mightily so. And we are reviewing with people like Judd Gregg from New Hampshire and others some budgetary reform measures that will reinstate – you know, possibly reinstate budgetary discipline. But the caps no longer – the caps, I guess they’re there. But they didn’t mean much.
George W. Bush
I am a Republican. I’m loyal to the party of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. And I believe that my party, in some ways, has strayed from those principles, particularly on the issue of fiscal discipline.
John McCain
Like art, like music, like so many other disciplines, prayer can only be appreciated when you actually spend time in it. Spending time with the Master will elevate your thinking. The more you pray, the more will be revealed. You will appreciate not only the greatness of prayer, but the greatness of God.
Joni Eareckson Tada
Inflexibility is the worst human failing. You can learn to check impetuosity, overcome fear with confidence and laziness with discipline. But for rigidity of mind, there is no antidote. It carries the seeds of its own destruction.
Anton Myrer
Without true celebration discipline is obnoxious.
Adi Da
Choose to make up for what you lack in innate ability with discipline, hard work, and good habits. Become a creature of champion habits.
Darren Hardy
I certainly do not adore the writer’s discipline. I have lost lovers, endangered friendships, and blundered into eccentricity, impelled by a concentration which usually is to be found only in the minds of people about to be executed in the next half hour.
Maya Angelou
Dad was in the British Army and my mom was in the Royal Air Force, so both of my parents believed in discipline.
Mike Myers
I think I’ve shown I have the defensive discipline to play deep as the No.6 and start the build ups with my passing. I can also play higher up the pitch and make a difference in the opposition area. Being able to do both has helped me to play so many games.
Georginio Wijnaldum
One of the early signs of sophistication is not giving way to all inclinations but rather sending your emotions to school so they will learn how to behave.
Jim Rohn
In our worldly perceptions of Jesus, we tend to embrace the kindness of his love (‘be encouraged’) but not the discipline of his love (‘and sin no more’). But with the whole scope of his love, or maturity in Christ, we begin relying on him for guidance where we would prefer him to walk beside us rather than behind us.
Criss Jami
I’m challenged by people like Russell Crowe and Sean Penn who come in with such incredible discipline and power.
Josh Lucas
I’ve never known a man worth his salt who, in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline
Vince Lombardi
Moral discipline is the consistent exercise of agency to choose the right because it is right, even when it is hard.
D. Todd Christofferson
The Bible is clear that those who fail to heed the Lord’s discipline – whether nations, cities, or individuals – suffer devastating consequences.
Charles Stanley
It’s a new day, a new beginning for your new life. With discipline you will be amazed at how much progress you’ll be able to make. What have you got to lose except the guilt and fear of the past?
Jim Rohn
Humility – the discipline of putting others ahead of self, the choice to value others above self – is, at its core, a matter of faith.
Charles R. Swindoll
Prison continues, on those who are entrusted to it, a work begun elsewhere, which the whole of society pursues on each individual through innumerable mechanisms of discipline.
Michel Foucault
Let us guide our students over the road of discipline from materials, through function, to creative work.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Worship is of fundamental significance to the life of the individual and to the corporate life of the church, yet we rarely hear it taught as a discipline or practice in the gathering of believers.
Carl Tuttle
Discipline of others isn’t punishment. You discipline to help, to improve, to correct, to prevent, not to punish, humiliate, or retaliate.
John Wooden
The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might and force of habit. He must be quick to break those habits that can break him-and hasten to adopt those practices that will become the habits that help him achieve the success he desires.
J. Paul Getty
An artist’s studio should be a small space because small rooms discipline the mind and large ones distract it.
Leonardo da Vinci
The spirit of the Olympic movement is great for young people because it teaches them about the training and discipline required to compete. Even if they don’t make the teams, they can rededicate their lives to the art of sport, discipline, and physical fitness.
Richard M. Daley
I’d shift disciplines, whether it was musical instruments or sports or whatever, and it’s the same with that.
Benedict Cumberbatch
I’ve never minded being disciplined. I’d always rather have a quiet evening in than go to a wild party. Discipline for me has always been the foundation which leaves me free to fly.
Julie Andrews
Don’t punish people who repent; heal them. I don’t believe that private sin requires public rebuke or removal from office if repentance is taking place. However, when no evidence of true repentance exists, then discipline is in order.
Ted Haggard
I talked about 12 to 18 months, and that’s about reaffirming our foundation for sustained growth: getting the discipline back, getting the basics right, getting the customer focus back… so by the end of next year, I hope most of that’s in place.
Jim Cantalupo
