Nathaniel Hawthorne

Happiness is a continuation of happenings which are not resisted.
Deepak Chopra

Habit, if not resisted, soon becomes necessity.
Saint Augustine

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.
Tryon Edwards

Lucius Annaeus Seneca
