Habit quotes by Henri-Pierre Roche
#1. Soon after they went back, Jules said to Jim: 'I love Magda. But it's a habit; it's not a great Love, not the real thing. To me, she's like a young mother and an attentive daughter, both at once.' 'But that's fine!' 'It's not the love I've always dreamed of having.' 'Does that kind of love exist?' said Jim. 'Of course! My love for Lucie.' Jim checked himself from saying, 'Because you do not possess her.' 'Besides,' Jules went on, 'knowing myself as I do, I shall never be able to forgive any woman for loving me. To love me is a sign of perversion or compromise -- and Lucie doesn't suffer from either. There's not a particle of me that she accepts.' 'With her, any man could think that.' 'Yes, could...' said Jules 'But I do.' 'Oh well,' said Jim, 'it's heroic and one can't help respecting it. It's a bit like martyrdom. And it's the key to your Life. If Lucie loved you...' 'She wouldn't be Lucie.' said Jules. #Quote by Henri-Pierre Roche
Habit quotes by Jack Canfield
#2. To change bad habits, we must study the habits of successful role models. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Habit quotes by Hannah More
#3. My plan of instruction is extremely simple and limited. They learn, on week-days, such coarse works as may fit them for servants. I allow of no writing for the poor. My object is not to make fanatics, but to train up the lower classes in habits of industry and piety. #Quote by Hannah More
Habit quotes by Epictetus
#4. Is this all the habit you acquired when you studied philosophy, to look to others and to hope for nothing from yourself and your own acts? Lament therefore and mourn, and when you eat be fearful that you will have nothing to eat to-morrow. Tremble for your wretched slaves, lest they should steal, or run away, or die. Live in this spirit, and never cease to live so, you who never came near philosophy, except in name, and disgraced its principles so far as in you lies, by showing them to be useless and unprofitable to those who take them up. #Quote by Epictetus
Habit quotes by H.L. Mencken
#5. It is the invariable habit of bureaucracies, at all times and everywhere, to assume ... that every citizen is a criminal. Their one apparent purpose, pursued with a relentless and furious diligence, is to convert the assumption into a fact. They hunt endlessly for proofs, and, when proofs are lacking, for mere suspicions. The moment they become aware of a definite citizen, John Doe, seeking what is his right under the law, they begin searching feverishly for an excuse for withholding it from him. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Habit quotes by Esther Hicks
#6. Those old habits don't have to be erased, they just become replaced by a new habit that is more in vibrational harmony with who you are and what you want. #Quote by Esther Hicks
Habit quotes by Edie Campbell
#7. I have a terrible habit of shopping after I go to the gym or hitting eBay. #Quote by Edie Campbell
Habit quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#8. The habit of mobility had become ingrained. #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Habit quotes by Penelope Douglas
#9. It looked like it, too, remembering the blanket of white over everything outside. How water kind of had a habit of quieting the world around me my entire life, and in one form or another, I sought it out and reveled in hiding behind it.

Looking over her shoulder, out the window, the snow fell, charging the air with a little more beauty, the animation making the Earth look alive even when everything else was still. A little more pretty. A little more peaceful. A little more cover. #Quote by Penelope Douglas
Habit quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#10. And so I have to live. Because we live for more than just ourselves, Most of the time we live for others, keep putting one foot before the other, left and right, left and right, so that walking becomes a habit, just like breathing. Ina n out, left and right. #Quote by Thrity Umrigar
Habit quotes by Anthony Trollope
#11. The habit of reading is the only enjoyment in which there is no alloy; it lasts when all other pleasures fade. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Habit quotes by Jane Addams
#12. Life cannot be administered by definite rules and regulations; that wisdom to deal with a man's difficulties comes only through some knowledge of his life and habits as a whole. #Quote by Jane Addams
Habit quotes by Jean Cocteau
#13. One of the characteristics of the dream is that nothing surprises us in it. With no regret, we agree to live in it with strangers, completely cut off from our habits and friends. #Quote by Jean Cocteau
Habit quotes by Francois Truffaut
#14. There are two kinds of directors; those who have the public in mind when they conceive and make their films and those who don't consider the public at all. For the former, cinema is an art of spectacle; for the latter, it is an individual adventure. There is nothing intrinsically better about one or the other; it's simply a matter of different approaches. For Hitchcock as for Renoir, as for that matter almost all American directors, a film has not succeeded unless it is a success, that is, unless it touches the public that one has had in mind right from the moment of choosing the subject matter to the end of production. While Bresson, Tati, Rossellini, Ray make films their own way and then invite the public to join the "game," Renoir, Clouzot, Hitchcock and Hawks make movies for the public, and ask themselves all the questions they think will interest their audience. Alfred Hitchcock, who is a remarkably intelligent man, formed the habit early--right from the start of his career in England--of predicting each aspect of his films. All his life he has worked to make his own tastes coincide with the public', emphasizing humor in his English period and suspense in his American period. This dosage of humor and suspense has made Hitchcock one of the most commercial directors in the world (his films regularly bring in four times what they cost). It is the strict demands he makes on himself and on his art that have made him a great director. #Quote by Francois Truffaut
Habit quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#15. To grow a habit is fun; to destroy it is matter of life and death #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Habit quotes by Amit Ray
#16. Cultivate the habit of making aware choice. Your choice makes your destiny. Do not be carried away by the unconscious choices. #Quote by Amit Ray
Habit quotes by Josh Billings
#17. Habits are like the wrinkles on a man's brow; if you will smooth out the one, I will smooth out the other. #Quote by Josh Billings
Habit quotes by Atul Gawande
#18. We are all plagued by failures - by missed subtleties, overlooked knowledge, and outright errors. For the most part, we have imagined that little can be done beyond working harder and harder to catch the problems clean up after them. We are not in the habit of thinking the way the army pilots did as they looked upon their shiny new Model 299 bomber - a machine so complex no one was sure human beings could try it. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Habit quotes by Rupi Kaur
#19. you are in the habit
of co-depending
on people to
make up for what
you think you lack
who tricked you
into believing
another person
was meant to complete you
when the most they can do is complement #Quote by Rupi Kaur
Habit quotes by Paul Krugman
#20. The habit of disguising ideology as expertise has created a deficit of legitimacy. #Quote by Paul Krugman
Habit quotes by Diana Trilling
#21. In the bad sixties, when drugs came into widespread use among adolescents and when Scarsdale mothers developed the habit of not asking about each others children for fear of what they'd hear, one knew that they were speaking-or not speaking, keeping their unhappy silence-on behalf of stricken motherhood everywhere in the country. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Habit quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#22. Now that physics is proving the intelligence of the universe what are we to do about the stupidity of mankind? I include myself. I know that the earth is not flat but my feet are. I know that space is curved but my brain has been condoned by habit to grow in a straight line. What I call light is my own blend of darkness. What I call a view is my hand-painted trompe-l'oeil. I run after knowledge like a ferret down a ferret hole. My limitations, I call the boundaries of what can be known. I interpret the world by confusing other people's psychology with my own. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Habit quotes by Rutherford B. Hayes
#23. I hope you will be benefitted by your churchgoing. Where the habit does not Christianize, it generally civilizes. That is reason enough for supporting churches, if there were no higher. #Quote by Rutherford B. Hayes
Habit quotes by Michael Josephson
#24. Character refers to dispositions and habits that determine the way that person normally responds to desires, fears, challenges, opportunities, failures and successes. #Quote by Michael Josephson
Habit quotes by Peter Forsyth
#25. People complain that the religious ground is unsure who have never compelled themselves to examine it with a tithe of the care spent on a contract; but they have taken current suggestions in a dreamy and hypnotised way. They will not attend, they will not force themselves to attend, gravely to the gravest things ... they read everything in a vagrant, browsing fashion. They turn on the most serious subjects the holiday, seaside, newspaper habit of mind #Quote by Peter Forsyth
Habit quotes by Tez Brooks
#26. Guys, I know some of you are leaving that used frying pan on the stove overnight and using it the next day for another meal. You know who you are. That's a gateway habit. Keep it up and before you know you'll be growing mushrooms on your shower floor and wearing your underwear inside out to avoid doing laundry. #Quote by Tez Brooks
Habit quotes by Rupert Sheldrake
#27. The assumption that the laws of nature are eternal is a vestige of the Christian belief system that informed the early postulates of modern science in the seventeenth century. Perhaps the laws of nature have actually evolved along with nature itself, and perhaps they are still evolving. Or perhaps they are not laws at all, but more like habits. #Quote by Rupert Sheldrake
Habit quotes by Charles Koch
#28. I learned that unless you start working, if you're frozen out of work, you will never learn the habits, the discipline, the values of cooperation and improvement unless you get a job, and that's what statistic show. It's, unless you get a job and keep it, you will not get out of poverty. If you do, you have a very good chance of working out of poverty. #Quote by Charles Koch
Habit quotes by Greg Plitt
#29. You are what you do repeatedly every day. If excellence is something you're striving for, then it's not an accident. It's a habit. #Quote by Greg Plitt
Habit quotes by Philippa Pearce
#30. A habit of solitude in early childhood is not easily broken. Indeed, it may prove lifelong. #Quote by Philippa Pearce
Habit quotes by Pete Newell
#31. I believe you can never change a habit, or create one, with a word or a piece of chalk. You can talk all day, put all sorts of diagrams on the board, but a habit is not going to change. It's a conditional reflex, created by a repetitive act. #Quote by Pete Newell
Habit quotes by David Brin
#32. The worst mistake of first contact, made throughout history by individuals on both sides of every new encounter, has been the unfortunate habit of making assumptions. It often proved fatal. #Quote by David Brin
Habit quotes by E.T.A. Hoffmann
#33. As the priest is characterized by his cassock, so the smoker by his pipe. The way in which he holds it, raises it to his lips, and knocks out the ashes, reveals his personality, habits, passions, and even his thoughts. #Quote by E.T.A. Hoffmann
Habit quotes by Craig Schaefer
#34. She has a habit of downplaying trouble. I don't suppose she told you about Tony Vance or Sheldon Kaufman? They were a couple of sorcerers in her last crew." Angus shook his head. "Not a word. What happened to 'em?" "I did. #Quote by Craig Schaefer
Habit quotes by Napoleon Hill
#35. Successful men become successful only because they acquire the habit of thinking in terms of success. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Habit quotes by Thomas Malthus
#36. The prodigious waste of human life occasioned by this perpetual struggle for room and food, was more than supplied by the mighty power of population, acting, in some degree, unshackled, from the constant habit of emigration. #Quote by Thomas Malthus
Habit quotes by Edward T. Welch
#37. Depressed people avoid people and church commitments, but they can also complain about abject isolation. The answer is to humbly accept your purpose. "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching" (Heb. 10:25). Churches are not perfect. How could they be when we are the church? But the Spirit is with the gathering of his people. Church is where you will know more of God's grace. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Habit quotes by Christian Smith
#38. Catholics actually think about prayer a little differently than evangelicals. Prayer is not simply praise and intercession. Prayer is, first of all, "the raising of one's mind and heart to God" (Catechism 2559). Prayer can also involve "the requesting of good things from God." But more fundamentally, "prayer is the living relationship of the children of God with their Father who is good beyond measure, with his Son Jesus Christ, and with the Holy Spirit. . . Thus, the life of prayer is the habit of being in the presence of the thrice-holy God and in communion with him #Quote by Christian Smith
Habit quotes by Richard Livingstone
#39. There is no virtue in being uncritical; nor is it a habit to which the young are given. But criticism is only the burying beetle that gets rid of what is dead, and, since the world lives by creative and constructive forces, and not by negation and destruction, it is better to grow up in the company of prophets than of critics. #Quote by Richard Livingstone
Habit quotes by Joshua L. Liebman
#40. Tolerance is the positive and cordial effort to understand another's beliefs, practices, and habits without necessarily sharing or accepting them. #Quote by Joshua L. Liebman
Habit quotes by Beryl Markham
#41. It seemed that the printers of the African maps had a slightly malicious habit of including, in large letters, the names of towns, junctions, and villages which, while most of them did exist in fact, as a group of thatched huts may exist or a water hole, they were usually so inconsequential as completely to escape discovery from the cockpit. #Quote by Beryl Markham
Habit quotes by Daniel C. Dennett
#42. That's a rhetorical question, and trying to answer rhetorical questions instead of being cowed by them is a good habit to cultivate. #Quote by Daniel C. Dennett
Habit quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#43. Vigilance in oneself is very important. Vigilance means to be alert to what happens inside, so you can catch an old, collective habit pattern. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Habit quotes by Jane Austen
#44. Perhaps you are not sitting in this room, and I am not sitting by you. These are points in which a doubt is equally possible. Not keep a journal! How are your absent cousins to understand the tenour of your life in Bath without one? How are the civilities and compliments of every day to be related as they ought to be, unless noted down every evening in a journal? How are your various dresses to be remembered, and the particular state of your complexion, and curl of your hair to be described in all their diversities, without having constant recourse to a journal? My dear madam, I am not so ignorant of young ladies' ways as you wish to believe me; it is this delightful habit of journaling which largely contributes to form the easy style of writing for which ladies are so generally celebrated. Everybody allows that the talent of writing agreeable letters is peculiarly female. Nature may have done something, but I am sure it must be essentially assisted by the practice of keeping a journal. #Quote by Jane Austen
Habit quotes by Dhirubhai Ambani
#45. The problem with Indians is that we have lost the habit of thinking big! #Quote by Dhirubhai Ambani
Habit quotes by John Perry
#46. Task triage is the habit of making a realistic assessment of what degree of perfection is required for a task at the point of accepting it, so one doesn't need to rely on one's habit of procrastinating to lower the bar. #Quote by John Perry
Habit quotes by Matthew Fox
#47. The universe is in the habit of making beauty. There are flowers and songs, snowflakes and smiles, acts of great courage, laughter between friends, a job well done, the smell of fresh baked bread. Beauty is everywhere. #Quote by Matthew Fox
Habit quotes by John Steinbeck
#48. But Doc had one mental habit he could not get over. When anyone asked a question, Doc thought he wanted to know the answer. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Habit quotes by Walter Bagehot
#49. The most intellectual of men are moved quite as much by the circumstances which they are used to as by their own will. The active voluntary part of a man is very small, and if it were not economized by a sleepy kind of habit, its results would be null. #Quote by Walter Bagehot
Habit quotes by Daniel W. Drezner
#50. Indeed, one concern would be that the initial neoconservative response to a zombie outbreak would be to invade Iraq again out of force of habit. #Quote by Daniel W. Drezner
Habit quotes by Bui Diem
#51. I have to admit it that the large quantity of US money poured into Vietnam provoked ii ... a lot of bad habits. #Quote by Bui Diem
Habit quotes by David Hume
#52. The supposition that the future resembles the past, is not founded on arguments of any kind, but is derived entirely from habit. #Quote by David Hume
Habit quotes by Irvine Welsh
#53. Whin yir oan junk, aw ye worry aboot is scorin. Oaf the gear, ye worry aboot loads ay things. Nae money, cannae git pished. Goat money, drinkin too much. Cannae git a burd, nae chance ay a ride. Git a burd, too much hassle, cannae breathe withoot her gittin oan yir case. Either that. or ye blow it, and feel aw guilty. Ye worry aboot bills, food, bailiffs, these Jambo Nazi scum beatin us, aw the things that ye couldnae gie a fuck aboot whin yuv goat a real junk habit. Yuv just goat one thing tae worry aboot. The simplicity ay it aw. Ken whit ah mean? #Quote by Irvine Welsh
Habit quotes by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck
#54. After having produced aquatic animals of all ranks and having caused extensive variations in them by the different environments provided by the waters, nature led them little by little to the habit of living in the air, first by the water's edge and afterwards on all the dry parts of the globe. These animals have in course of time been profoundly altered by such novel conditions; which so greatly influenced their habits and organs that the regular gradation which they should have exhibited in complexity of organisation is often scarcely recognisable. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck
Habit quotes by Morrissey
#55. I avoid people who I actually like. I suppose that's a phobia but also a habit. #Quote by Morrissey
Habit quotes by Virginia Woolf
#56. I want someone to sit beside after the day's pursuit and all its anguish, after its listening, and its waitings, and its suspicions. After quarrelling and reconciliation I need privacy - to be alone with you, to set this hubbub in order. For I am as neat as a cat in my habits. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Habit quotes by Shelly Stoehr
#57. We cut ourselves. Not by accident, we do it purposely, and regularly, because physical pain is comforting, and because now it has become a habit. #Quote by Shelly Stoehr
Habit quotes by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
#58. Habit is a second nature, and what was at first pleasure, is next necessity. #Quote by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
Habit quotes by Marshall Sylver
#59. Turn your habit into a conscious decision. #Quote by Marshall Sylver
Habit quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#60. The relations between us in those latter days were peculiar. He was a man of habits, narrow and concentrated habits, and I had become one of them. As an institution I was like the violin, the shag tobacco, the old black pipe, the index books, and others perhaps less excusable. When it was a case of active work and a comrade was needed upon whose nerve he could place some reliance, my role was obvious. But apart from this I had uses. I was a whetstone for his mind. I stimulated him. He liked to think aloud in my presence. His remarks could hardly be said to be made to me--many of them would have been as appropriately addressed to his bedstead--but none the less, having formed the habit, it had become in some way helpful that I should register and interject. If I irritated him by a certain methodical slowness in my mentality, that irritation served only to make his own flame-like intuitions and impressions flash up the more vividly and swiftly. Such was my humble role in our alliance. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Habit quotes by John Boyle O'Reilly
#61. How shall I a habit break? As you did that habit make, As you gathered, you must lose; As you yielded, now refuse, Thread by thread the strands we twist Till they bind us neck and wrist, Thread by thread the patient hand Must untwine ere free we stan #Quote by John Boyle O'Reilly
Habit quotes by Ellen Hopkins
#62. Have you ever tried to quit a bad habit, one that has come to define you? To cease using a substance--any substance--that you not only need but enjoy? To stop yourself from lighting up that cigarette? It's going to kill you, but hey, you're going to die someday anyway, why not die happy, why not die buzzed, why not die satisfied? Why not die sooner, with fewer regrets, than later? #Quote by Ellen Hopkins
Habit quotes by John Adams
#63. The consequences of these institutions (The towns or districts, the congregations, the schools,and the militia.) have been, that the inhabitants, having acquired from their infancy the habit of discussing, of deliberating, and of judging of public affairs, it was in these assemblies of towns or districts that the sentiments of the people were formed in the first place, and their resolutions were taken from the beginning to the end of the disputes and the war with Great Britain. #Quote by John Adams
Habit quotes by William Hazlitt
#64. Vice is man's nature: virtue is a habit
or a mask. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Habit quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#65. We keep wanting to save those who are forlorn in this world. It's a male habit. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Habit quotes by Robert L. Mooers Jr.
#66. Ordinarily one need not be preoccupied with time in the woods. Indeed, something is to be said for going there to forget it, but it is well to develop a habit of noting times for distances traveled. #Quote by Robert L. Mooers Jr.
Habit quotes by Sherwood Smith
#67. When she was done, I said, "Thanks, Ria. That's as good as an afternoon nap in the summer."
"A shame you have to put it up again," she said, smiling. "It's so pretty--the color of autumn leaves. Promise you'll never cut it."
"I won't. It's the only thing I have left to share with my mother, the color of our hair. And she always wanted me to grow it out." My fingers worked quickly from old habit as I braided it up again, wrapped it twice around my head, and tucked the end in. "But I can't parade around in long hair during a war. Or, I suppose I could, except then I'd end up carrying half the mountain in it."
"You can wear it down after we win, then, and start a new fashion."
"You'll be the one starting the fashions," I said, laughing up at her.
"Duchess Oria," she said, swishing around my tiny tent. "New silk shoes every day--twice a day! I can hardly wait."
"That'll do," Julen said to Oria. She was vigorously brushing mud off my alternate pair of woolen trousers. "You stop your nonsense and go and get your rest. We'll have to make a supply run again tomorrow." Oria stuck her tongue out at her mother, grinned at me, and ran out. Julen laid my other tunic down. "This is the best I can make of these trousers; the mud will not come out. Your brother's old tunic looks even worse," she said, frowning heavily. "I wish I could wash these properly! Even so, they wouldn't look much better. 'Tis shameful, you not dressing to befit your station. Especially o #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Habit quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#68. Thinking aloud is a habit which is responsible for most of mankind's misery. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Habit quotes by Jean-Georges Noverre
#69. The defects born of habit are innumerable. I see every child occupied in some way in disarranging and disfiguring his physique; some displace the ankles through the habit they have contracted of standing on one leg only and playing, as it were, with the other; placing it in a position which though disagreeable and strained, does not fatigue them, because the softness of their tendons and muscles lend themselves to all kinds of movement. #Quote by Jean-Georges Noverre
Habit quotes by Booker T. Washington
#70. By habits of thrift and economy, by way of the industrial school and college, we are coming up. We are crawling up, working up, yea, bursting up-often through oppression, unjust discrimination and prejudice-but through them all we are coming up, and with proper habits, intelligence, and property, there is no power on earth than can permanently stay our progress. #Quote by Booker T. Washington
Habit quotes by Albert Camus
#71. Living, naturally, is never easy. You continue making the gestures commanded by existence for many reasons, the first of which is habit. Dying voluntarily implies that you have recognized, even instinctively, the ridiculous character of that habit, the absence of any profound reason for living, the insane character of that daily agitation and the uselessness of suffering. #Quote by Albert Camus
Habit quotes by Lawren Harris
#72. No man can roan or inhabit the Canadian North without it affecting him, and the artist, because of his constant habit of awareness and his discipline in expression, is perhaps more understanding of its moods and spirit than others are. He is thus better equipped to interpret it to others, and then, when her has become one with its spirit, to create living works in their own right, by using forms, colors, rhythms and moods, to make a harmonious home for the imaginative and spiritual meaning it has evoked in him. #Quote by Lawren Harris
Habit quotes by Karen Traviss
#73. My books deliberately provide no answers or messages. I'm drilled in the habit of objectivity and also aware that the steady drip of fiction has more power than facts to shape opinion, so I handle it with caution. #Quote by Karen Traviss
Habit quotes by Janne Teller
#74. The Nation State as such is totally a construction: what we feel for it in terms of habits, traditions, countryside or nature could exist without the notion of Nation. #Quote by Janne Teller
Habit quotes by David J. Schwartz
#75. Success shuns the man who lacks ideas. #Quote by David J. Schwartz
Habit quotes by Charles Baxter
#76. Charm sometimes has a habit of taking its leave of you. (p.256) #Quote by Charles Baxter
Habit quotes by John Eliot
#77. Thinking is a habit, and like any other habit, it can be changed; it just takes effort and repetition. #Quote by John Eliot
Habit quotes by Melissa Leo
#78. I am a smoker, I'm ashamed to say. I had given it up for many years, then picked it up again. It's a horrible habit. I struggle with myself all the time. And I love to smoke. #Quote by Melissa Leo
Habit quotes by Jamie McGuire
#79. I wasn't mad at you. I just have a bad habit of lashing out at those I care about. It's a piss poor excuse, I know, but I am sorry, he said, enveloping me in his arms. #Quote by Jamie McGuire
Habit quotes by R.v.m.
#80. If you make it a Habit to make your Today better than your Yesterday, then for sure, your Tomorrow will be better than your Today.-RVM #Quote by R.v.m.
Habit quotes by Aristotle.
#81. It is well said, then, that it is by doing just acts that the just man is produced, and by doing temperate acts the temperate man; without doing these no one would have even a prospect of becoming good. #Quote by Aristotle.
Habit quotes by Og Mandino
#82. Only a habit can subdue another habit. #Quote by Og Mandino
Habit quotes by Radhanath Swami
#83. In Kali yuga, duration of life is shortened not so much because insufficient food but because of irregular habits. #Quote by Radhanath Swami
Habit quotes by Lorrie Moore
#84. If I had a staff of even one person, or could tolerate a small amphetamine habit, or entertain the possibility of weekly blood transfusions, or had been married to Vera Nabokov, or had a housespouse of even minimal abilities, a literary life would be easier to bring about. (In my mind I see all your male readers rolling their eyes. But your female ones - what is that? Are they nodding in agreement? Are their fists in the air?) #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Habit quotes by Chetan M. Kumbhar
#85. Winning cannot become your habit unless defeats have torn you apart
and you sit in the battle field
stitching back yourself
one piece at a time
laughing in the faces of all defeats. #Quote by Chetan M. Kumbhar
Habit quotes by Margaret Atwood
#86. What do you want me to do? he whispers into the empty air.
It's hard to know.
Oh Jimmy, you were so funny.
Don't let me down.
From habit he lifts his watch; it shows him its blank face.
Zero hour, Snowman thinks. Time to go. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Habit quotes by Joshua Ferris
#87. For all our penny-wisdom,'" he said, "'for all our soul-destroying slavery to habit, it is not to be doubted that all men have sublime thoughts. #Quote by Joshua Ferris
Habit quotes by David Zindell
#88. [ ... ] when you look at the world, you put on the goggles of custom, habit and tribal wisdom lest the truth make you insane [ ... ] you see the world reflected in your own image; you see yourself reflected to the image of the world [ ... ] #Quote by David Zindell
Habit quotes by Lawrence Durrell
#89. The loved object is simply one that has shared an experience at the same moment of time, narcissistically; and the desire to be near the beloved object is at first not due to the idea of possessing it, but simply to let the two experiences compare themselves, like reflections in different mirrors. All this may precede the first look, kiss, or touch; precede ambition, pride, or envy; precede the first declarations which mark the turning point - for from here love degenerates into habit, possession, and back to loneliness. #Quote by Lawrence Durrell
Habit quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#90. Luxury is dangerous to people who have never known it and to whom its temptations are held out too suddenly. [ ... ] Just as the advantage of culture is that it enables you to talk nonsense with distinction, so the habit of luxury allows you to regard its frills and furbelows with a proper contumely.
[Giulia Lazzari] #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Habit quotes by Alexi Lawless
#91. One glance at the way he looked at her, and Sam knew exactly what he was. A lethal habit, she thought. The accelerator on a race car. A halo jump on a crystal clear day. The best possible rush with the worst possible consequences. #Quote by Alexi Lawless
Habit quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#92. It contributes greatly towards a man's moral and intellectual health, to be brought into habits of companionship with individuals unlike himself, who care little for his pursuits, and whose sphere and abilities he must go out of himself to appreciate. #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Habit quotes by Anjelica Huston
#93. Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking Program achieved for me a thing that I thought was not possible - to give up a thirty year smoking habit literally overnight. It was nothing short of a miracle. #Quote by Anjelica Huston
Habit quotes by George Orwell
#94. I am always amazed when I hear people saying that sport creates goodwill between the nations, and that if only the common peoples of the world could meet one another at football or cricket, they would have no inclination to meet on the battlefield. Even if one didn't know from concrete examples (the 1936 Olympic Games, for instance) that international sporting contests lead to orgies of hatred, one could deduce it from general principles ... There cannot be much doubt that the whole thing is bound up with the rise of nationalism - that is, with the lunatic modern habit of identifying oneself with large power units and seeing everything in terms of competitive prestige. #Quote by George Orwell
Habit quotes by Sidney Dark
#95. I have met ghosts who attract me, and, following my habit in the material world, I have avoided the ghosts that bore me. #Quote by Sidney Dark
Habit quotes by Napoleon Hill
#96. Without doubt, the most common weakness of all human beings is the habit of leaving their minds open to the negative influence of other people. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Habit quotes by Andrew Tudor
#97. Occasional observers of horror movies have a nasty habit of asking why it is that there is always some poor misguided soul who opens the door to the cellar or to the attic or to the crypt when it's quite clear that no sane person would even consider it. #Quote by Andrew Tudor
Habit quotes by Cassandra Clare
#98. Aren't they supposed to be hiring someone else to train me full-time anyway?"
"Yes," he said, getting up and pulling her to her feet along with him," and I'm worried that if you get into the habit of making out with your instructors, you'll wind up making out with him, too."
" Don't be sexist. They could find me a female instructor."
"In that case you have my permission to make out with her, as long as I can watch. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Habit quotes by Samuele Bacchiocchi
#99. It is only when a Christian recognizes that drinking is not only a harmful habit, but also a transgression of a God-given principle to ensure our health and holiness, that he or she will feel compelled to abstain from intoxicating substances. #Quote by Samuele Bacchiocchi
Habit quotes by Jarrid Wilson
#100. Habits don't just happen overnight. If a habit takes 30 days to form, then those 30 days will tell you a lot about your commitments. Are you cutting down on your Starbucks habit so that you can read Scripture in the morning before work? Or are you routinely hitting snooze and falling off your exercise program 10 days in? We all have the same 24 hours in a day, and have to make choices about we're using our time. We make trade-offs based on what we deem most important at the time - for better or for worse. #Quote by Jarrid Wilson
Habit quotes by Henry James
#101. She sat with great intensity, giving the whole of her mind to it, and was capable of remaining for an hour almost as motionless as if she were before a photographer's lens. I could see she had been photographed often, but somehow the very habit that made her good for that purpose unfitted her for mine. At first I was extremely pleased with her lady-like air, and it was a satisfaction, on coming to follow her lines, to see how good they were and how far they could lead the pencil. But after a few times I began to find her too insurmountably stiff; do what I would with it my drawing looked like a photograph or a copy of a photograph. Her figure had no variety of expression -- she herself had no sense of variety. You may say that this was my business, was only a question of placing her. I placed her in every conceivable position, but she managed to obliterate their differences. She was always a lady certainly, and into the bargain was always the same lady. She was the real thing, but always the same thing. There were moments when I was oppressed by the serenity of her confidence that she WAS the real thing. #Quote by Henry James
Habit quotes by Michelle Falkoff
#102. ..., and I went back to my old habit of walking the halls looking down most of the time. It was different now, though - before I'd done it without thinking, because I didn't know another way. Now I was actively avoiding a life I knew might be out there. But it was my choice. #Quote by Michelle Falkoff
Habit quotes by Manu Joseph
#103. Ayyan had developed the habit of reading anything in front of him, even if it was something he did not really understand, because he believed that one reason why everybody was here, including the sons of municipal sweepers, was to collect as much information as possible before dying with a funny look on the face. #Quote by Manu Joseph
Habit quotes by Joseph Dougherty
#104. I think habits and behaviors are very hard to change. And they're even harder when you're back home. #Quote by Joseph Dougherty
Habit quotes by Terry Pratchett
#105. Actors had a habit of filling all the space around them. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Habit quotes by Li Yuanchao
#106. Surfing the Internet every day has become a habit for many leaders and officials, including myself. #Quote by Li Yuanchao
Habit quotes by Anna Quindlen
#107. When you really want to say no, say no. You can't do everything - or at least not well. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Habit quotes by Charles Duhigg
#108. Typically, people who exercise, start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Habit quotes by Riley Redgate
#109. Hannah gave a feral smile and let her dark eyes bore into Laila's. This was one of several reasons people were terrified of her: the Hannah Park stare. If it weren't enough that Hannah was beautiful, in the same way an ice storm or a forest fire was beautiful, she also had the habit of making more unbroken, intense eye contact than was comfortable for anybody. #Quote by Riley Redgate
Habit quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#110. Most human beings live like a bird in a cage whose door was blown away. Out of habit, too busy gold-plating the cage, they do not soar to the ultimate possibility. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Habit quotes by Eoin Colfer
#111. The ripple effects of young Opal's murder in the corner of a field were more widespread than even Artemis could have imagined, though in truth imagine is the wrong verb, as Artemis Fowl was not in the habit of imagining anything. Even as a small boy, he had never nurtured daydreams of himself on horseback fighting dragons. What Artemis preferred to do was visualize an achievable objective and then work toward that goal. #Quote by Eoin Colfer
Habit quotes by Michael Redhill
#112. I have a strange habit of walking down streets and staring up, rather than looking at shopfronts and stuff like that. #Quote by Michael Redhill
Habit quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#113. The grace of novelty and the length of habit, though so very opposite to one another, yet agree in this, that they both alike keepus from discovering the faults of our friends. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Habit quotes by Virginia Woolf
#114. Better is it', she thought, 'to be clothed with poverty and ignorance, which are the dark garments of the female sex; better be quit of martial ambition, the love of power, and all the other manly desires if so one can more fully enjoy the most exalted raptures known to the humane spirit, which are', she said aloud as her habit was when deeply moved, 'contemplation, solitude, love. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Habit quotes by Giordano Bruno
#115. It is immoral to hold an opinion in order to curry another's favor; mercenary, servile, and against the dignity of human liberty to yield and submit; supremely stupid to believe as a matter of habit; irrational to decide according to the majority opinion, as if the number of sages exceeded the infinite number of fools. #Quote by Giordano Bruno
Habit quotes by Tryon Edwards
#116. Any act often repeated soon forms a habit; and habit allowed, steady gains in strength, At first it may be but as a spider's web, easily broken through, but if not resisted it soon binds us with chains of steel. #Quote by Tryon Edwards
Habit quotes by Deepak Chopra
#117. If you approach a difficult problem without struggle, your ego will at first try to take charge from years of habit. Do the minimum and stand back. Solutions incubate at a deep level, not at the speed demanded by your mind. Take a break and come back the next day. Allow the answers to arise from your center, even if it takes a while. However much you have to retrain yourself in this practice of Least Effort, the ability to come from your center is worth the highest price anyone could pay. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Habit quotes by David Suzuki
#118. Come on Canada, it's time to kick our bad habits and get into shape! #Quote by David Suzuki
Habit quotes by Stephen Covey
#119. Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Habit quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#120. My wife has a beastly habit of comparing poetry
all literature in fact
to the droppings of the goats among the rocks
mere excreta that fertilises the ground it falls on. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Habit quotes by Becky Masterman
#121. I've sometimes regretted the women I've been.

There have been so many: daughter, sister, cop, tough broad, several kinds of whore, jilted lover, ideal wife, heroine, killer.

I'll provide the truth of them all, inasmuch as I'm capable of telling the truth.

Keeping secrets, telling lies, they require the same skill. Both become a habit, almost an addiction, that's hard to break even with the people closest to you, out of the business.

They say never trust a woman who tells you her age; if she can't keep that secret, she can't keep yours.

I'm fifty-nine. #Quote by Becky Masterman
Habit quotes by Marian Keyes
#122. You've recognised a fundamental feature of an addict's life. Maintaining your habit is so important you've no real interest in anything else. #Quote by Marian Keyes
Habit quotes by Napoleon Hill
#123. Building alibis is a deeply rooted habit. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Habit quotes by Elie Metchnikoff
#124. Needless fear and panic over disease and misfortune that seldom materialize are simply bad habits. By proper ventilation and illumination of the mind it is possible to cultivate tolerance, poise and real courage. #Quote by Elie Metchnikoff
Habit quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#125. Vivimos descubriendo y olvidando
esa dulce costumbre de la noche.
Hay que mirarla bien. Puede ser última.

(Our life is spent discovering and forgetting
that gentle habit of the night.
Take a good look. It could be the last.) #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Habit quotes by Henry James
#126. She was a young person of many theories; her imagination was remarkably active. It had been her fortune to possess a finer mind than most of the persons among whom her lot was cast; to have a larger perception of surrounding facts, and to care for knowledge that was tinged with the unfamiliar...It may be affirmed without delay that She was probably very liable to the sin of self-esteem; she often surveyed with complacency the field of her own nature; she was in the habit of taking for granted, on scanty evidence, that she was right; impulsively, she often admired herself...Every now and then she found out she was wrong, and then she treated herself to a week of passionate humility. After this she held her head higher than ever again; for it was of no use, she had an unquenchable desire to think well of herself. She had a theory that it was only on this condition that life was worth living; that one should be one of the best, should be conscious of a fine organization, should move in the realm of light, of natural wisdom, of happy impulse, of inspiration gracefully chronic. #Quote by Henry James
Habit quotes by Wendell Berry
#127. The difference between a path and a road is not only the obvious one. A path is little more than a habit that comes with knowledge of a place. It is a sort of ritual of familiarity. As a form, it is a form of contact with a known landscape. It is not destructive. It is the perfect adaptation, through experience and familiarity, of movement to place; it obeys the natural contours; such obstacles as it meets it goes around. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Habit quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#128. Should [reformers] attempt more than the established habits of the people are ripe for, they may lose all and retard indefinitely the ultimate object of their aim. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Habit quotes by Jennifer A. Nielsen
#129. I thought you were from a civilized country," he said. "How have you come to look more like Carthya's whipping boy than its king?"
"I have a habit of irritating some of our less civilized people," I answered. "But you seem like a civilized ... pirate. I'd much prefer it if you didn't have me whipped."
"And why shouldn't I?"
With some effort, I forced a smile to my face. "Because it will hurt. #Quote by Jennifer A. Nielsen
Habit quotes by Earl Chinnici
#130. I'm not just blowing smoke when I say that I hope this book and the story it tells helps inspire many people to fight back against their addiction to "tobacco cigarettes." The cigarette addiction is not glamorous. The addiction does not make anyone appear to be fun, smart, or sexy. The addiction is not enjoyable in the least. Of course, if you were to ask thirty-six people why they smoke, I am sure twenty-nine will tell you that they enjoy smoking. I have also said this a few times. However, to find even one person who enjoys being addicted to cigarettes or who enjoys being addicted to poison is another story altogether. Over the years, I have often been in the company of "tobacco cigarette smokers" and yet I do not remember once when anybody said, "I enjoy being addicted to cigarettes" or "I really do enjoy my addiction to poisons" or "My addiction is what I enjoy most about smoking. #Quote by Earl Chinnici
Habit quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#131. It would conduce to national progress and save a great deal of time and trouble if we cultivated the habit of never supporting the resolutions either by speaking or voting for them if we had not either the intention or the ability to carry them out. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Habit quotes by D.A. Carson
#132. Emulate those who are interested in the well-being of others, not in their own. Be on the alert for Christians who really do exemplify this basic Christian attitude, this habit of helpfulness. They are never the sort who strut their way into leadership with inflated estimates of their own importance. They are the kind who cheerfully pick up after other people. They are not offended if no one asks about them; they are too busy asking about others. They are the kind who are constantly seeking to do good spiritually, to do good materially, to do good emotionally. They are committed to the well-being of others. #Quote by D.A. Carson
Habit quotes by Shiv Khera
#133. Research has shown that it takes 31 days of conscious effort to make or break a habit. That means, if one practices something consistently for 31 days, on the 32nd day it does become a habit. Information has been internalised into behavioural change, which is called transformation. #Quote by Shiv Khera

Habit quotes by Alex Garland
#136. When you develop an infatuation for someone you always find a reason to believe that this is exactly the person for you. It doesn't need to be a good reason. Taking photographs of the night sky, for example. Now, in the long run, that's just the kind of dumb, irritating habit that would cause you to split up. But in the haze of infatuation, it's just what you've been searching for all these years. #Quote by Alex Garland

Habit quotes by William Shakespeare
#142. As love is full of unbefitting strains,
All wanton as a child, skipping and vain,
Form'd by the eye and therefore, like the eye,
Full of strange shapes, of habits and of forms,
Varying in subjects as the eye doth roll
To every varied object in his glance #Quote by William Shakespeare
Habit quotes by Matthew De Abaitua
#143. Losing him would, she realised, be unlike anything she had ever experienced before. A marriage is a conspiracy, a shared aspect toward the rest of the society, a code devised over a long history of negotiation and habit. That code would vanish. Her thoughts would be unobserved, her memories would be hers alone, without the heft that comes from sharing them with another. She would become insubstantial to herself. #Quote by Matthew De Abaitua
Habit quotes by Edward McKendree Bounds
#144. It is necessary to iterate and reiterate that prayer, as a mere habit, as a performance gone through by routine or in a professional way, is a dead and rotten thing. #Quote by Edward McKendree Bounds
Habit quotes by Bertrand Russell
#145. Of these austerer virtues the love of truth is the chief, and in mathematics, more than elsewhere, the love of truth may find encouragement for waning faith. Every great study is not only an end in itself, but also a means of creating and sustaining a lofty habit of mind; and this purpose should be kept always in view throughout the teaching and learning of mathematics. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Habit quotes by Daniel Pennac

Habit quotes by Tom Robbins

Consider how threatened religious fundamentalists of all faiths remain to this day by science in general and Darwin in particular. #Quote by Tom Robbins

Habit quotes by Bertrand Russell
#151. Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Habit quotes by James Freeman Clarke
#152. If we desire to do what will please God, and what will help men, we presently find ourselves taken out of our narrow habits of thought and action; we find new elements of our nature called into activity; we are no longer running along a narrow track of selfish habit. #Quote by James Freeman Clarke
Habit quotes by Will Rogers

Habit quotes by Judith McNaught
#154. At the moment Ormsley looked on the verge of tears as his damp, faded blue eyes roved almost lovingly over Ian's face. "Good afternoon, my lord," he intoned formally, but the ecstatic expression on his face gaze Ian the impression the servant was restraining himself from wrapping his arms around him. "And-and may I say-" The elderly man stopped, his voice hoarse with emotion, and cleared his throat. "And may I say how very-how very very good it is to have you here at-" His voice choked, he flushed, and Ian's ire at his grandfather was momentarily forgotten.
"Good afternoon, Ormsley," Ian said, grinning at the look of sublime pleasure that crossed Ormsley's lined face when Ian knew his name. Sensing the butler was about to bow again, Ian put out his hand instead, forcing the loyal retainer to shake hands with him. "I trust," Ian joked gently, "that you've conquered your habit of overindulging in French brandy?"
The faded old eyes brightened like diamonds at this added proof that Ian's father had spoken of him to Ian.
"Welcome home. Welcome home at last, my lord," Ormsley said hoarsely, returning Ian's handshake.
"I'm only staying a few hours," Ian told him calmly, and the butler's hand went a little limp with disappointment. He recovered himself, however, and escorted Ian down a wide, oak-paneled hall. A small army of footmen and housemaids seemed to be lurking about, ostensibly dusting mirrors, paneling, and floors. As Ian passed, several of them stole lon #Quote by Judith McNaught
Habit quotes by Joseph Campbell
#155. Dragons, you know, we have a good deal of biology and zoology about the dragon; we know their habits. The dragon tends to guard things, and he usually has these guarded in a cave ... Now dragons don't know what to do either with beautiful girls or gold, but they just hang on. There are people like this. We call them creeps. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Habit quotes by Michelle Obama
#156. You have to practice success. Success doesn't just show up. If you aren't practicing success today, you won't wake up in 20 years and be successful, because you won't have developed the habits of success, which are small things like finishing what you start, putting a lot of effort into everything you do, being on time, treating people well. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Habit quotes by Peter Drucker
#157. Use feedback analysis to identify your strengths. Then go to work on improving your strengths. Identify and eliminate bad habits that hinder the full development of your strengths. Figure out what you should do and do it. Finally, decide what you should not do. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Habit quotes by Edith Wharton
#158. But how could she trust herself to keep her footing? She knew the strength of the opposing impulses-she could feel the countless hands of habit dragging her back into some fresh compromise with fate. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Habit quotes by R. R. Reno
#159. Relativism is not a philosophical theory. It is a spiritual truth, a protective dogma designed to fend off any power that might claim our loyalty. It is a habit of mind that insulates postmodern life from the sober potency of arguments and the force of evidence, from the rightful claims of reason and the wisdom of the past. #Quote by R. R. Reno
Habit quotes by Ayn Rand

Habit quotes by Graham Greene
#163. Those who marry God can become domesticated too - it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Maria like dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves - it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night. #Quote by Graham Greene
Habit quotes by Horatio Dresser
#164. Be true to the best you know. This is your high ideal. If you do your best, you cannot do more. Do your best every day and your life will gradually expand into satisfying fullness. Cultivate the habit of doing one thing at a time with quiet deliberateness. Always allow yourself a sufficient margin of time in which to do your work well. Frequently examine your working methods to discover and eliminate unnecessary tension. Aim at poise, repose, and self-control. The relaxed worker accomplishes most. #Quote by Horatio Dresser
Habit quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#165. A free man must be able to endure it when his fellow men act and live otherwise than he considers proper. He must free himself from the habit, just as soon as something does not please him, of calling for the police. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Habit quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#166. Yeah, well, I'm regretting every letting you catch me that night," she huffed, taking no notice of his machinations as she blew back her hair in that charming habit she had. It was an invitation he could not resist. His hands crept into her gorgeous hair, the luxuriant strands settling between his fingers.
"Hey, sweetheart, it was either me or the concrete. One of us had to do it."
"At this point I'm thinking the concrete would've been less painful ... and less complicated. #Quote by Jacquelyn Frank
Habit quotes by Maxwell Maltz
#167. Happiness is a mental habit, a mental attitude, and if it is not learned and practiced in the present it is never experienced. It cannot be made contingent upon solving some external problem. When one problem is solved, another appears to take its place. Life is a series of problems. If you are to be happy at all, you must be happy - period! Not happy "because of". #Quote by Maxwell Maltz
Habit quotes by F. Matthias Alexander
#168. ... the delusion that because we are able to do what we "will to do" in acts that are habitual and involve familiar sensory experiences, we shall be equally successful in doing what we "will to do" in acts which are contrary to our habit and therefore involve sensory experiences that are unfamiliar. #Quote by F. Matthias Alexander

Habit quotes by Randall Jarrell

Habit quotes by Javier Marias
#172. For me that's the only way of understanding a particular term that everyone here bandies about quite happily, but which clearly can't be quite that straight forward because it doesn't exist in many languages, only in Italian and Spanish, as far as I know, but then again, I don't know that many languages. Perhaps in German too, although I can't be sure: el enamoramiento--the state of falling or being in love, or perhaps infatuation. I'm referring to the noun, the concept; the adjective, the condition, are admittedly more familiar, at least in French, although not in English, but there are words that approximate that meaning ... We find a lot of people funny, people who amuse and charm us and inspire affection and even tenderness, or who please us, captivate us, and can even make us momentarily mad, we enjoy their body and their company or both those things, as is the case for me with you and as I've experienced before with other women, on other occasions, although only a few. Some become essential to us, the force of habit is very strong and ends up replacing or even supplanting almost everything else. It can supplant love, for example, but not that state of being in love, it's important to distinguish between the two things, they're easily confused, but they're not the same ... It's very rare to have a weakness, a genuine weakness for someone, and for that someone to provoke in us that feeling of weakness. #Quote by Javier Marias

Habit quotes by Hilary Mantel
#175. It is a sure sign of troubled minds, the habit of quotation. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Habit quotes by Marcel Proust
#176. The telephone was not yet at that date as commonly in use as it is today. And yet habit requires so short a time to divest of their mystery the sacred forces with which we are in contact, that, not having had my call at once, my immediate thought was that it was all very long and very inconvenient, and I almost decided to lodge a complaint. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Habit quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#177. [T]he habit of living as if in the shadow of death has remained with me, and I consider that, too, a gift. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Habit quotes by Adam Smith
#178. The man whose whole life is spent in performing a few simple operations, of which the effects are perhaps always the same, or very nearly the same, has no occasion to exert his understanding or to exercise his invention in finding out expedients for removing difficulties which never occur. He naturally loses, therefore, the habit of such exertion, and generally becomes as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human creature to become. #Quote by Adam Smith
Habit quotes by A.W. Tozer
#179. I venture to suggest that the one vital quality which they had in common was spiritual receptivity. Something in them was open to heaven, something which urged them Godward. Without attempting anything like a profound analysis I shall say simply that they had spiritual awareness and that they went on to cultivate it until it became the biggest thing in their lives. They differed from the average person in that when they felt the inward longing they did something about it. They acquired the lifelong habit of spiritual response. They were not disobedient to the heavenly vision. As David put it neatly, "When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek" (p. 67). #Quote by A.W. Tozer
Habit quotes by Marianne Williamson
#180. Happiness is the choice I make today. It does not rest on my circumstances, but on my frame of mind. I surrender to God any emotional habits that lead me down the path of unhappiness, and pray for guidance in shifting my thoughts. In cultivating the habits of happiness, I attract the people and situations that match its frequency. I smile more often, give praise more often, give thanks more often, and am glad more often. For such is my choice today. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Habit quotes by Katharine Ashe
#181. I am not in the habit of forgiving."
"Perhaps you might make an exception this time."
"I don't know why I should."
"Consider my injuries." The dent deepened anew. "Perhaps I am already sufficiently punished."
She tried not to smile. "I won't apologize for that."
"I never expected you to. Now may we put this unfortunate episode behind us and instead pretend to be two people who happened to become acquainted over spilled champagne?" "Why should we pretend that?"
"It's either that or the pitchfork." His dark eyes glimmered.
"All right. But don't do it again."
"Kiss you in the stable or defend you from tabbies?"
The heat was back in her face. "Either."
"I believe I can promise that." He bowed again. "Good night, madam." He walked away.

Habit quotes by Roz Chast
#182. I think I have a habit of, in my head, taking notes on whatever, you know, whether they're verbal or pictorial or just making a note of things as they're happening. #Quote by Roz Chast
Habit quotes by Norman Cousins
#183. We in America have everything we need except the most important thing of all-time to think and the habit of thought. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Habit quotes by David Attenborough
#184. We really need to kick the carbon habit and stop making our energy from burning things. Climate change is also really important. You can wreck one rainforest then move, drain one area of resources and move onto another, but climate change is global. #Quote by David Attenborough
Habit quotes by Mary Pipher
#185. Gratitude is a life skill that can be improved with practice. Even during the toughest trials, we can learn to find things to enjoy and appreciate. I don't mean to imply that we can manage to be grateful every moment. That would be an unrealistic demand on ourselves. Feeling grateful is not a moral injunction but rather a healthy habit that we can learn to employ with grater frequency. #Quote by Mary Pipher
Habit quotes by Lucas Remmerswaal
#186. H is for Habit, winners make a habit of doing the things losers don't want to do. #Quote by Lucas Remmerswaal
Habit quotes by Daniel Gardner
#187. The rather uncomfortable feeling most of us have when we're around snakes is evidence of how this ancient experience continues to influence us today. Throughout the long prehistory of our species and those that preceded it, snakes were a mortal threat. And so we learned our lesson. Others didn't, but that had a nasty habit of dying. So natural selection did its work and the rule
beware of snakes
was ultimately hardwired into every human brain. It's universal. Go anywhere on the planet, examine any culture. People are wary of snakes. Even if
as in the Arctic
there are no snakes. Our primate cousins shared our long experience and they feel the same way: Even monkeys raised in laboratories who have never seen a snake will back away at the sight of one. #Quote by Daniel Gardner
Habit quotes by Susan Barbara Apollon
#188. Focusing on thoughts or images that make you feel good will enable you to be at a higher level energetically and, consequently, will draw to you a higher level of vibrational experience. In other words, positive thoughts will attract positive experiences. The reverse is also true. If you've fallen into the habit of negative obsessing and/or fear-based thinking, you need to know that you can shift to a healthier, happier mindset. #Quote by Susan Barbara Apollon
Habit quotes by Seth Godin
#189. The habit of doing more than is necessary can only be earned through practice. #Quote by Seth Godin
Habit quotes by Samuel Beckett
#190. Habit is a compromise effected between the individual and his environment, or between the individual and his own organic eccentricities, the guarantee of a dull inviolability, the lightning-conductor of his existence. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Habit quotes by Mel Gibson
#191. The really good thing about using people who are really green is that you don't have to erase a bunch of bad habits and then put good ones in. You can just start feeding them good habits. #Quote by Mel Gibson
Habit quotes by Brian Tracy
#192. Make a habit of dominating the listening, and let the prospect dominate the talking. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Habit quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#193. You know, pet, that is one truly annoying habit you have, telling me what I do and do not feel. After living for over two hundred and forty-one years, I think I know my own mind. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Habit quotes by Mooji
#194. Feelings, by themselves, do not create problems. It is rather the tendency to interpret and analyze them. When out of habit you believe those interpretations, it is there that the suffering begins. #Quote by Mooji
Habit quotes by Raymond Chandler
#195. Writers who get written about become self-conscious. They develop a regrettable habit of looking at themselves through the eyes of other people. They are no longer alone, they have an investment in critical praise, and they think they must protect it. This leads to a diffusion of effort. The writer watches himself as he works. He grows more subtle and he pays for it by loss of organic dash. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Habit quotes by James F. Cooper
#196. The habit of seen the public rule, is gradually accustoming the American mind to an interference with private rights that is slowly undermining the individuality of the national character. There is getting to be so much public right, that private right is overshadowed and lost. A danger exists that the ends of liberty will be forgotten altogether in the means. #Quote by James F. Cooper
Habit quotes by Bronnie Ware
#197. Start creating the habit of counting your blessings for being alive today. Take ownership of your life. Shift your priorities. You are going to die! Understand this, and get excited about the gift of today. You are alive right now. #Quote by Bronnie Ware
Habit quotes by Andy Stanley
#198. Author has developed a routine of daily emotional debriefing with his kids as he tucks them in at night. To encourage the habit of keeping uncluttered, open heart, he starts with basic questions asking whether anyone has hurt them or made them angry to help them process at an age-appropriate depth. As they mature, he will add questions. #Quote by Andy Stanley
Habit quotes by Jen Lancaster
#199. The living room is a monument to my impulsive spending habits. I've got more than two hundred DVDs, including cinematic greats such as Monkey Bone, Corkey Romano, and A Night at the Roxbury, leading me to believe not only do I have awful taste in films, but I also have a Chris Kattan fixation. What I don't have is $4000 earing intrest in a money market account. #Quote by Jen Lancaster
Habit quotes by Irvine Welsh
