Famous quotes containing the words stick and/or control:

    It is commonly said, and more particularly by Lord Shaftesbury, that ridicule is the best test of truth; for that it will not stick where it is not just. I deny it. A truth learned in a certain light, and attacked in certain words, by men of wit and humour, may, and often doth, become ridiculous, at least so far, that the truth is only remembered and repeated for the sake of the ridicule.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Not being able to control events, I control myself; and I adapt myself to them, if they do not adapt themselves to me.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
