Moderation is the silken string running through the pearl-chain of all virtues.thomas fuller
The most necessary disposition to relish pleasures is to know how to be without them.
This only grant me, that my means may lie too low for envy, for contempt too high.Abraham Cowley
The moderation of fortunate people comes from the calm which good fortune gives to their tempers.
Give me neither poverty nor riches.
Immoderate desire is the mark of a child, not a man.
The animal needing something knows how much it needs, the man does not.
