Tao Bible - Proverbs 25:28

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
~ King James version ~

Knowing the self is enlightenment.
...Mastering the self needs strength.
~ from Verse 33 of the Tao Te Ching ~
We spend so much of our lives focusing on and criticizing others. The true virtue of a person is to know thyself. If we can't learn to tame our own craven lusts and desires, how can we expect any more of someone else?
