Contexto: It is not good for ordinary people to say, "I am He." The waves belong to the water. Does the water belong to the waves?
The upshot of the whole thing is that, no matter what path you follow, yoga is impossible unless the mind becomes quiet. The mind of a yogi is under his control; he is not under the control of his mind.

Contexto: Calmly take what ill betideth;
Patience wins the crown at length:

Brave the tamer of the lion;
Brave whom conquered kingdoms praise;
Bravest he who rules his passions,
Who his own impatience sways.

On Truth and Lie in an Extra-Moral Sense (1873)
Contexto: The venerability, reliability, and utility of truth is something which a person demonstrates for himself from the contrast with the liar, whom no one trusts and everyone excludes. As a "rational" being, he now places his behavior under the control of abstractions. He will no longer tolerate being carried away by sudden impressions, by intuitions.

Able to assist the transforming and nourishing powers of Heaven and Earth, he may with Heaven and Earth form a ternion.

Not one immoral, one corrupted thought,
One line which, dying, he could wish to blot.“

„no one talks more passionately about his rights than he who in the depths of his soul doubts whether he has any“

—  Friedrich Nietzsche, livro Humano, Demasiado Humano

I.597
Human, All Too Human (1878)
Contexto: No one talks more passionately about his rights than he who in the depths of his soul doubts whether he has any. By enlisting passion on his side he wants to stifle his reason and its doubts: thus he will acquire a good conscience and with it success among his fellow men.
