Quotable Quotes

“Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passions.” — Thomas Aquinas

“Temperance is moderation in things that are good and total abstinence from things that are foul.” — Frances E. Willard

“A man who makes his golf or his motor-bicycle the centre of his life, or a woman who devotes all her thoughts to clothes or bridge or her dog, is being just as “intemperate” as someone who gets drunk every evening.” — C. S. Lewis

“The first requirements for a heroic career are the knightly virtues of loyalty, temperance, and courage.” — Joseph Campbell

“Temperance and labor are the two best physicians for man. Labor sharpens the appetite and temperance prevents from indulging to excess.” — Jean-Jacques Rousseau

“Temperance, in the nobler sense, does not mean a subdued and imperfect energy; it does not mean stopping short in any good thing, as in love and in faith; but it means the power which governs the most intense energy, and prevents it acting in any way but as it ought.” — John Ruskin
