Quote by Norman Cousins
He who keeps his cool best wins.
This quote suggests that an individual who maintains their composure and does not let their emotions dictate their actions is more likely to succeed. It implies that staying calm allows one to think more clearly and make rational decisions, rather than being driven by impulsive reactions. By emphasizing the importance of self-control, the quote suggests that those who can remain composed in challenging situations are more likely to achieve their goals and come out on top.
My hands tend to be full enough dealing with people who hate me for who I am. Concentrate too hard on the millions of people who hate you for what you are and you're likely to turn into one of those unkempt, sloppy dressers who sag beneath the weight of the two hundred political buttons they wear pinned to their coats and knapsacks.
We assemble parliaments and councils, to have the benefit of their collected wisdom; but we necessarily have, at the same time, the inconvenience of their collected passions, prejudices, and private interests. By the help of these, artful men overpower their wisdom, and dupe its possessors; and if we may judge by the acts, arrets, and edicts, all the world over, for regulating commerce, an assembly of great men is the greatest fool upon earth.
