Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 2/22/09

// Jean Vanier English



The Discipline of Self-Control

He showed astonishing self-control, and this in turn required great effort on his part. In many ways, by temperament, he had all the volatility of his French and Irish ancestors. His instincts were to become angry or exasperated easily, but very rarely did he allow such reactions to be visible externally. And on the very few occasions when he did show even so much as a gesture of impatience he would profoundly and sincerely apologize afterwards.

- Jean Vanier, of his father, Georges P. Vanier
In Weakness, Strength p. 28
