The Real Reason Your Acne Is Out of Control

Famous quotes containing the words control, real and/or reason:

    To try to control a nine-month-old’s clinginess by forcing him away is a mistake, because it counteracts a normal part of the child’s development. To think that the child is clinging to you because he is spoiled is nonsense. Clinginess is not a discipline issue, at least not in the sense of correcting a wrongdoing.
    Lawrence Balter (20th century)

    Thoughtfulness for others, generosity, modesty, and self- respect, are the qualities which make a real gentleman, or lady, as distinguished from the veneered article which commonly goes by that name.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    As for fowling, during the last years that I carried a gun my excuse was that I was studying ornithology, and sought only new or rare birds. But I confess that I am now inclined to think that there is a finer way of studying ornithology than this. It requires so much closer attention to the habits of the birds, that, if for that reason only, I have been willing to omit the gun.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
