“Why is discipline important? Discipline teaches us to operate by principle rather than desire. Saying no to our impulses (even the ones that are not inherently sinful) puts us in control of our appetites rather than vice versa. It deposes our lust and permits truth, virtue, and integrity to rule our minds instead.”
John F. MacArthur Jr.
Atilla Ishi liked a quote
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“The more I love humanity in general the less I love man in particular. In my dreams, I often make plans for the service of humanity, and perhaps I might actually face crucifixion if it were suddenly necessary. Yet I am incapable of living in the same room with anyone for two days together. I know from experience. As soon as anyone is near me, his personality disturbs me and restricts my freedom. In twenty-four hours I begin to hate the best of men: one because he’s too long over his dinner, another because he has a cold and keeps on blowing his nose. I become hostile to people the moment they come close to me. But it has always happened that the more I hate men individually the more I love humanity.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“Full freedom will come only when it makes no difference whether to live or not to live. That’s the goal for everyone.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Demons

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“The first thing is to lower the level of education, science and accomplishment.1 A high level of science and accomplishment is accessible only to people of high ability, and there’s no need for high ability! People of high ability have always seized power and been despots. People of high ability can’t help but be despots and have always corrupted more than they have brought benefit; they are sent into exile or executed.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Demons

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“The main thing is that I believe myself when I lie. The hardest thing in life is to live and not lie… and… and not to believe your own lies, yes, yes, that’s it precisely!”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Demons

Jack London
“I am a sick man - oh, not my body. It is my soul, my brain. I seem to have lost all values. I care for nothing. If you had been this way a few months ago, it would have been different. It is too late, now.”
Jack London

Jack London
“He was disappointed in it all. He had developed into an alien. As the steam beer had tasted raw, so their companionship seemed raw to him. He was too far removed. Too many thousands of opened books yawned between them and him. He had exiled himself. He had travelled in the vast realm of intellect until he could no longer return home. On the other hand, he was human, and his gregarious need for companionship remained unsatisfied. He had found no new home.”
Jack London, Martin Eden
