Fantastic book with lessons that are just as applicable today as they were when written. The book brings old world values to modern life.

The message of self-reliance and personal responsibility are lacking in our current internet culture, and the book delivers exactly those sublime virtues.

Self Control, Its Kingship and Majesty is not just a self-help

Overview

Fantastic book with lessons that are just as applicable today as they were when written. The book brings old world values to modern life.

The message of self-reliance and personal responsibility are lacking in our current internet culture, and the book delivers exactly those sublime virtues.

Self Control, Its Kingship and Majesty is not just a self-help book. This is a lifestyle to be adopted by the intellectual.

The man who has a pessimist's doubt of all things; who demands a certified guarantee of his future; who ever fears his work will not be recognized or appreciated; or that after all, it is really not worth while, will never live his best. He is dulling his capacity for real progress by his hypnotic course of excuses for inactivity, instead of a strong tonic of reasons for action.

Content is a greatly overrated virtue. It is a kind of diluted despair; it is the feeling with which we continue to accept substitutes, without striving for the realities. Content makes the trained individual swallow vinegar and try to smack his lips as if it were wine. Content enables one to warm his hands at the fire of a past joy that exists only in memory. Content is a mental and moral chloroform that deadens the activities of the individual to rise to higher planes of life and growth. Man should never be contented with anything less than the best efforts of his nature can possibly secure for him.

When the tongue of malice and slander, the persecution of inferiority, tempts you for just a moment to retaliate, when for an instant you forget yourself so far as to hunger for revenge,-be calm.

Meet the Author

William George Jordan (March 6, 1864 - April 20, 1928) was an American editor and lecturer.

Jordan was born in New York City on March 6, 1864. He graduated from the City College of New York and began his literary career as editor of Book Chat in 1884. He joined Current Literature in 1888 and became its managing editor. In 1891 he left Current Literature and moved to Chicago where he started a lecture program on his system of Mental Training.

His style of speaking was very engaging and powerful. To explain a principle he used a lot of analogies to bring concrete pictures of the concepts into the minds of his readers and listeners.
