habits

A Quote by Luigi Cornaro on concern, habits, and life

Any man who leads the regular and temperate life, not swerving from it in the least degree where his nourishment is concerned, can be but little affected by other disorders or incidental mishaps. Whereas, on the other hand, I truly conclude that disorderly habits of living are those which are fatal.

Luigi Cornaro (1467? - 1566)

A Quote by Louise L. Hay on experience, habits, and needs

For every habit we have, for every experience we go through over and over, for every pattern we repeat, there is a NEED WITHIN US for it.

A Quote by John Dalberg, Lord Acton on accuracy, habits, history, learning, proof, theory, and writers

Writers the most learned, the most accurate in details, and the soundest in tendency, frequently fall into a habit which can neither be cured nor pardoned - the habit of making history into the proof of their theories.

Lord Acton Dalberg (1834 - 1902)

A Quote by Leo J. Muir on absence, admiration, character, good, habits, and pity

It is probably a sound definition of character to say that it is habitual self-mastery toward good ends. . . . Character is a subtle thing. Its sources are obscure, its roots delicate and invisible. We know it when we see it and it always commands our admiration, and the absence of it our pity; but it is largely a matter of will.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on chance, decisions, experience, habits, knowledge, play, success, and work

It has been our experience that if a young man decides to go on a mission, he can not only play well when he returns, he will often play better. If an athlete could play well before he went on a mission, he will definitely play well when he returns; and, if an athlete could not play well before his mission, he probably won't play well when he returns. However, his chances of playing well are perhaps better if he goes because he will return with . . . better work habits, and a better knowledge of what it takes to be successful.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on commitment, desires, habits, knowledge, leadership, success, understanding, and work

He will return with a greater understanding of himself, greater leadership capabilities, better work habits, and a better knowledge of what it takes to be successful. It really depends on the young man's desire, commitment, work habits, and how important it is to him when he returns.

I suspect that these traits-desire, commitment, and good work habits-are important in all facets of our lives. . . .

A Quote by L. G. Elliott on cooperation, day, desires, habits, life, and work

The long span of the bridge of your life is supported by countless cables called habits, attitudes, and desires. What you do in life depends upon what you are and what you want. What you get from life depends upon how much you want it-how much you are willing to work and plan and cooperate and use your resources. The long span of the bridge of your life is supported by countless cables that you are spinning now, and that is why today is such an important day. Make the cables strong!

A Quote by J.Todd Ferrier on desires, dignity, divinity, habits, learning, nature, and suffering

We are what we think; as we desire so do we become! By our thoughts, desires, and habits, we either ascend to the full divine dignity of our nature, or we descend to suffer and learn.

J.Todd Ferrier (1855 - 1943)
