“What we do upon some great occasion will probably depend on what we already are; and what we are will be the result of previous years of self-discipline.”

H.P. Liddon, on Self-Control. (August 20, 1829 – September 9, 1890) was an English theologian. The son of a naval captain, he was born at North Stoneham, near Eastleigh, Hampshire. He was educated at King’s College School, and at Christ Church, Oxford, where he graduated, taking a second class, in 1850. As vice principal of the theological college at Cuddesdon (1854–1859) he wielded considerable influence, and, on returning to Oxford as vice-principal of St Edmund Hall, became a force among the undergraduates, exercising his influence in opposition to the liberal reaction against Tractarianism, which had set in after John Henry Newman‘s conversion to Catholicism in 1845.
