Enthusiasm is the vital quality that arouses you to action, while self control is the balance wheel that directs your action so that it will build up and not tear down. It is a fact that the majority of a man's griefs come about through lack of self control. The holy scriptures are full of admonitions in support of self control. They even urge us to love our enemies and to forgive those who injure us. Study the records of those whom the world calls great, and observe that every one of them possesses this quality of self-control!
