Untitled "Human affairs would be much more happily conducted if it were equally in the power of man to be silent and to speak; but experience shows over and over again that there is nothing which men have less power over than the tongue, and that there is nothing which they are less able to do than to govern their appetites."--Spinoza on self-control. From the series Great Ideas.
