Quote of the Day (Daniel Webster, on Self-Discipline)

“The greatest of all warriors in the siege of Troy had not the pre-eminence because nature had given strength and he carried the largest bow, but because self-discipline had taught him how to bend it.”—U.S. Senator, statesman and orator Daniel Webster (1782-1852) quoted in The World’s Laconics: or, The Best Thoughts of the Best Authors, edited by Everard Berkeley (1853)
