Self-control – not to be carried about by anything; to be in good spirits in troubles and illness; to have a well-proportioned character, gentle but reverent; and to not be sullen with the work at hand.  To believe that everyone spoke as he thought; that which one might do, he did not do for an evil purpose. He didn’t startle, wasn’t fazed; didn’t shrink back or clinch his teeth.  Nor was he angry, or suspicious; he was beneficent, indulgent; he wasn’t easily changed rather than giving the appearance of man being improved. He never appeared to anyone to be haughty, nor did anyone suppose himself to be better than him. Oh, and he was gracious.
