Discipline is the human faculty of inculcating a determination to do what is right or useful, even when more pleasant activities are readily at hand. "Few are born brave, but many are made so through care and discipline" (an ancient Roman general).

Children are first disciplined by their parents, and as they mature they participate in the process of becoming more responsibility through self-discipline. People who do not discipline themselves are subject to sanctions or punishments (also called "discipline").
