Clausewitz

Carl von Clausewitz

We repeat again: strength of character does not consist solely in having powerful feelings, but in maintaining one’s balance in spite of them. Even with the violence of emotion, judgment and principle must still function like a ship’s compass, which records the slightest variations however rough the sea.


Carl von Clausewitz, On War (1832), Book I, Chapter Three.
