Orrin Woodward of Team - Governing Oneself

"Self-respect is the root of discipline: The sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself."- Abraham Joshua Heschel

"Not being able to govern events, I govern myself, and apply myself to them, if they will not apply themselves to me."- Michel de Montaigne

When I read these I thought of Orrin Woodward, the most self-disciplined man I know. He could have written them. He most certainly lives them.
