How to use self-possession in a sentence?

  1. Charles Sydney Gibbes:

    “He had a, ‘presence,’ that was second to none, so full of quiet and assured self-possession and dignity. But it never inspired fear. The deepest sentiment that it invoked was awe, not fear. I think the reason for this was his eyes. Yes, I am sure that it was his eyes, so wonderful were they. Of the most delicate, shade of blue, they looked you straight in the face with the kindest, tenderest, most loving expression…His eyes were so clear that it seemed as if he opened the whole of his soul to your gaze, a soul that was so simple and pure that it did not fear your scrutiny…That was his great charm and this was politically his great weakness.”
