Subdued Quotations

Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above them.
Washington Irving

Hugh Mackay

No evil propensity of the human heart is so powerful that it may not be subdued by discipline.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

I have come to regard November as the older, harder man's October. I appreciate the early darkness and cooler temperatures. It puts my mind in a different place than October. It is a month for a quieter, slightly more subdued celebration of summer's death as winter tightens its grip.
Henry Rollins

There are moments when a man's imagination, so easily subdued to what it lives in, suddenly rises above its daily level and surveys the long windings of destiny.
Edith Wharton
