A man has to learn that he cannot command things, but that he can command himself; that he cannot coerce the wills of others, but that he can mold and master his own will: and things serve him who serves Truth; people seek guidance of him who is master of himself.
The will is a beast of burden. If God mounts it, it wishes and goes as God wills; if Satan mounts it, it wishes and goes as Satan wills; Nor can it choose its rider... the riders contend for its possession.
Lawless are they that make their wills their law.
Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else.
No one is more miserable than the person who wills everything and can do nothing.

Aiden Wilson Tozer
