Better to conquer yourself than others.

103. Greater in battle than the man who would conquer a thousand-thousand men, is he who would conquer just one —
himself.

104-105. Better to conquer yourself than others. When you’ve trained yourself, living in constant self-control,
neither a deva nor gandhabba, nor a Mara banded with Brahmas,
could turn that triumph
back into defeat.

Thanissaro
