All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason, passion, and desire.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
Hard work, disciplined habits, modesty in living, contentment and cheerfulness.
Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.
One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat.
Repetition of the same thought or physical action develops into a habit which, repeated frequently enough, becomes an automatic reflex.
Sow a thought and you get an act; Sow an act and you get a habit; Sow a habit and you get a character; Sow a character and you get a destiny.

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