Control Quotes

Control is required in every facet of life wherein we need this ability to coordinate our actions so that we suppress, change or direct them purposefully. However, to control other aspects of life, one need to first learn self-control, which is the fundamental and most important factor of a disciplined life. To control one-self, one’s emotion, desires and outlook, can be very tough. But once this is done, the reins of life will be in one’s hands. Look through the control quotes given below to learn how controlling can lead life in a new direction.
