Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.

Never give way to melancholy; resist it steadily, for the habit will encroach.
Even though it's hard to learn how to back your car out the driveway at first, once it becomes a habit, you can do it almost automatically and think about something else, like the meeting that you need to go to today or what's on the radio.
There is a woman named Wendy Wood, who did a study when she was at Duke, and she followed around college students to try to figure out how much of their day was decision-making versus how much was habit.

For a long time, I had a crazy girl dating habit.
Every time I would open my mouth to sing, everybody was paying attention to me. It became a habit.
I'm focused on the next generation, because I think it's very hard to break the habit of adults who've got salt and sugar addictions and just ways of being in this world.

I had developed this habit of writing scenarios as a hobby. I would find out which stories had been sold to be made into films and I would write my own treatment and then compare it.
I have this habit to bow my head, as to look shorter, maybe as a result of an unconscious demand of not taking up so much space.
