He must not expect to gain it save by long continued payment of price, in small progressive expenditures of energy.

Nature is a thorough believer in the installment plan in her relations with the individual. No man is so poor that he cannot begin to pay for what he wants, and every small, individual payment that he makes, Nature stores and accumulates for him as a reserve fund in his hour of need. The patience man expends in bearing the little trials of his daily life Nature stores for him as a wondrous reserve in a crisis of life.
With Nature, the mental, the physical or the moral energy he expends daily in right doing is all stored for him and transmuted into strength. Nature never accepts a cash payment in full for anything,—this would be an injustice to the poor and to the weak. It is only the progressive installment plan Nature recognizes.
Self-Control Its Kingship and Majesty
No man can make a habit in a moment or break it in a moment. It is a matter of development, of growth. But at any moment man may begin to make or begin to break any habit.
This view of the growth of character should be a mighty stimulus to the man who sincerely desires and determines to live nearer to the limit of his possibilities. Self-control may be developed in precisely the same manner as we tone up a weak muscle,—by little exercises day by day.

Let us each day do, as mere exercises of discipline in moral gymnastics, a few acts that are disagreeable to us, the doing of which will help us in instant action in our hour of need. The exercises may be very simple—dropping for a time an intensely interesting book at the most thrilling page of the story; jumping out of bed at the first moment of waking; walking home when one is perfectly able to do so, but when the temptation is to take a car; talking to some disagreeable person and trying to make the conversation pleasant.
The individual can attain self-control in great things only through self-control in little things. Limit the size to characters. However, note that many search engines truncate at a much shorter size, about characters. Your suggestion will be processed as soon as possible. This book is in the public domain in Canada, and is made available to you DRM-free.

Incredible uses of Analogies. Its content is pure gold and much better than today's shallow self-help books. It is much more than Self-Control in our contemporary sense. I heard about it reading the art of Manliness.

What a hidden Treasure! Dec 02, Mike rated it really liked it. Self help books are definitely not my genre. Happened upon this one based on a forum recommendation. I'm glad I did. The message of self reliance and personal responsibility are lacking in our current internet culture. This is truly an old-school view that is refreshing.
