Habit is a cable; we weave a thread of it each day, and at last we cannot break it.
-Horace Mann ●
Such as are your habitual thoughts, such also will be the character of your mind; for the soul is dyed by the thoughts.
● Marcus Aurelius ●
Take care of your thoughts,
Then, actions will take care of themselves.
You sow an action and reap a tendency.
You sow a tendency and reap a habit.
You sow your habit and reap your character.
You sow your character and reap your destiny.
Therefore, destiny is in your hands.
● Sathya Sai Baba ●
One will seldom go wrong if one attributes extreme actions to vanity, average ones to habit and petty ones to fear.
● Friedrich Nietzsche ●
Buddha's doctrine: man suffers because of his craving to possess and keep forever things which are essentially impermanent. Chief among these things is his own person, for this is his means of isolating himself from the rest of life, his castle into which he can retreat and from which he can assert himself against external forces. He believes that his fortified and isolated position is the best means of obtaining happiness; it enables him to fight against change, to strive to keep pleasing things for himself, to shut out suffering and shape

circumstances as he wills. In short, it is his means of resisting life. The Buddha taught that all things, including his castle, are essentially impermanent and as soon as man tries to possess them they slip away; this frustration ofthe desire to possess is the immediate cause of suffering.
● Alan Watts ●
