4 Maccabees 1:30
Clear thinking is the guide of moral character, but it has full power over the emotions. Consider first the way in which clear thinking shows that it is supreme over the emotions through the exercise of self-control.
For reason is the guide of the virtues, but over the emotions it is sovereign. Observe now, first of all, that rational judgment is sovereign over the emotions by virtue of the restraining power of self-control.
