Most people live, whether physically, intellectually, or morally, in a very restricted circle of their being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul's resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into the habit of using and moving only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed.
William James quotes
Each year one vicious habit rooted out, in time might make the worst man good throughout.
Benjamin Franklin quotes
As widowers proverbially marry again, so a man with the habit of friendship always finds new friends.
George Santayana quotes
Life never becomes a habit to me. It's always a marvel.
Katherine Mansfield quotes
Character is simply habit long continued.
The soul, like the body, accepts by practice whatever habit one wishes it to contact.
The habit of looking on the bright side of every event is worth more than a thousand pounds a year.
Samuel Johnson quotes
Iím the kid who has this habit of dreaming. Sometimes gets me in trouble too. But the truth is I could no more stop dreaming, than I could make them all come true.
Successful people aren't born that way. They become successful by establishing the habit of doing things unsuccessful people don't like to do. The successful people don't always like these things themselves; they just get on and do them.
Fun is about as good a habit as there is.
