Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray : “I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”

Standing on the Sky’s Edge

I accept that the ability to dominate our emotions can and are difficult, and also that some of our emotions can be devastating and occasionally  life ending It is essential that we must remember that we do have control, and it calls for a selfishness in our thoughts to changed and to try to become what we want to be.
