Habit quotes
Habit

The chains of habit are generally too week to be felt, until they are too strong to be broken.

- Johnson, Samuel
2.

Here is the piece. If you can't say fornicate can you say copulate or if not that can you say co-habit? If not that would have to say consummate I suppose. Use your own good taste and judgment.

- Hemingway, Ernest
3.

The habit of giving only enhances the desire to give.

- Walt Whitman
4.

All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason, passion, and desire.

- Aristotle
5.

Thoughts are things; they have tremendous power. Thoughts of doubt and fear are pathways to failure. When you conquer negative attitudes of doubt and fear you conquer failure. Thoughts crystallize into habit and habit solidifies into circumstances.

- Adams, Bryan
6.

Fear is a habit; so is self-pity, defeat, anxiety, despair, hopelessness and resignation. You can eliminate all of these negative habits with two simple resolves: I can!! and I will!!

7.

In every age of well-marked transition, there is the pattern of habitual dumb practice and emotion which is passing and there is oncoming a new complex of habit.

- Whitehead, Alfred North
8.

When we walk the streets at night in safety, it does not strike us that this might be otherwise. This habit of feeling safe has become second nature, and we do not reflect on just how this is due solely to the working of special institutions. Commonplace thinking often has the impression that force holds the state together, but in fact its only bond is the fundamental sense of order which everybody possesses.

- Hegel, Georg
9.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

- Aristotle
10.

Any historian of the literature of the modern age will take virtually for granted the adversary intention, the actually subversive intention, that characterizes modern writing -- he will perceive its clear purpose of detaching the reader from the habits of thought and feeling that the larger culture imposes, of giving him a ground and a vantage point from which to judge and condemn, and perhaps revise, the culture that produces him.

- Trilling, Lionel
11.

The power of habit and the charm of novelty are the two adverse forces which explain the follies of mankind.

- Beausacq, Maria De
12.

Man becomes a slave to his constantly repeated acts. What he at first chooses, at last compels.

- Marden, Orison Swett
13.

Love's best habit is a soothing tongue.

- William Shakespeare
14.

Habit with its iron sinews, clasps us and leads us day by day.

- Lamartine, Alphonse De
15.

Almost always tradition is nothing but a record and a machine-made imitation of the habits that our ancestors created. The average conservative is a slave to the most incidental and trivial part of his forefathers glory -- to the archaic formula which happened to express their genius or the eighteenth-century contrivance by which for a time it was served.

- Lippmann, Walter
16.

Man is not imprisoned by habit. Great changes in him can be wrought by crisis -- once that crisis can be recognized and understood.

- Cousins, Norman
17.

REPUBLIC, n. A nation in which, the thing governing and the thing governed being the same, there is only a permitted authority to enforce an optional obedience. In a republic, the foundation of public order is the ever lessening habit of submission inherited from ancestors who, being truly governed, submitted because they had to. There are as many kinds of republics as there are graduations between the despotism whence they came and the anarchy whither they lead.

- Ambrose Bierce
18.

Habits - the only reason they persist is that they are offering some satisfaction. You allow them to persist by not seeking any other, better form of satisfying the same needs. Every habit, good or bad, is acquired and learned in the same way - by finding that it is a means of satisfaction.

- Juliene Berk
19.

He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time till at length it becomes habitual.

- Jefferson, Thomas
20.

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
