Quote of the Day
Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
George Washington Carver
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

George Bernard Shaw
Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

Creativity is a habit, and the best creativity is the result of good work habits.
A child-like man is not a man whose development has been arrested; on the contrary, he is a man who has given himself a chance of continuing to develop long after most adults have muffled themselves in the cocoon of middle-aged habit and convention.
Failure is only postponed success as long as courage 'coaches' ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory.
Fear is not in the habit of speaking truth; when perfect sincerity is expected, perfect freedom must be allowed; nor has anyone who is apt to be angry when he hears the truth any cause to wonder that he does not hear it.
Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
You should hurry up and acquire the cigar habit. It's one of the major happinesses. And so much more lasting than love, so much less costly in emotional wear and tear.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Rigid, the skeleton of habit alone upholds the human frame.
In my fairly disorganized life, yellow stickies are too easily lost, and as for software, I try to avoid using my computer as much more than a typewriter and a post office. I rely on my lifelong habit of daydreaming to spin my stories.
Procrastination is the bad habit of putting of until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.
Discipline is based on pride, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of the goal or the fear of failure.

Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
