Habit quotes
Habit
Habit is a cable; we weave a thread of it each day, and at last we cannot break it.

- Mann, Horace
The pursuit of Fashion is the attempt of the middle class to co-opt tragedy. In adopting the clothing, speech, and personal habits of those in straitened, dangerous, or pitiful circumstances, the middle class seeks to have what it feels to be the exigent and nonequivocal experiences had by those it emulates.

- Mamet, David
A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits.

- Robert Heinlein
When a milestone is conquered, the subtle erosion called entitlement begins its consuming grind. The team regards its greatness as a trait and a right. Half hearted effort becomes habit and saps a champion.

- Riley, Pat
Habit is the second nature which destroys the first.

- Pascal, Blaise
Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts.

- Aristotle
Children demand that their heroes should be freckleless, and easily believe them so: perhaps a first discovery to the contrary is less revolutionary shock to a passionate child than the threatened downfall of habitual beliefs which makes the world seem to totter for us in maturer life.

- Eliot, George
A large part of virtue consists in good habits.

- William Paley
Wise living consists perhaps less in acquiring good habits than in acquiring as few habits as possible.

- Hoffer, Eric
He is a benefactor of mankind who contracts the great rules of life into short sentences, that may be easily impressed on the memory, and so recur habitually to the mind.

- Samuel Johnson
Habits are cobwebs at first; cables at last.

- Chinese Proverb
Good habits are as easy to form as bad ones.

- Mccarver, Tim
Successful people have cultivated the habit of never denying to themselves their true feelings and attitudes. They have no need for pretenses.

- Fink, David Harold
The beginning of a habit is like an invisible thread, but every time we repeat the act we strengthen the strand, add to it another filament, until it becomes a great cable and binds us irrevocably thought and act.

- Marden, Orison Swett
OCCIDENT, n. The part of the world lying west (or east) of the Orient. It is largely inhabited by Christians, a powerful subtribe of the Hypocrites, whose principal industries are murder and cheating, which they are pleased to call "war" and "commerce." These, also, are the principal industries of the Orient.

- Ambrose Bierce
Habit is a form of exercise

- Hubbard, Elbert
To stop smoking is the easiest thing I ever did. I ought to know; I've done it a thousand times.

- Twain, Mark
If an addict who has been completely cured starts smoking again he no longer experiences the discomfort of his first addiction. There exists, therefore, outside alkaloids and habit, a sense for opium, an intangible habit which lives on, despite the recasting of the organism. The dead drug leaves a ghost behind. At certain hours it haunts the house.

- Cocteau, Jean
Drab Habitation of Whom? Tabernacle or Tomb -- or Dome of Worm -- or Porch of Gnome -- or some Elf's Catacomb?

- Dickinson, Emily
People who have attained things worth having in this world have worked while others have idled, have persevered while others gave up in despair, and have practiced early in life the valuable habits of self-denial, industry, and singleness of purpose. As a result, they enjoy in later life the success often erroneously attributed to good luck.

- Kleiser, Grenville
