Rut Quotations

Every year I try to grow as a player and not get stuck in a rut. I try to improve my game in every way possible. But that trait is not something I've worked on, it's part of me.
Lionel Messi

Good intentions never change anything. They only become a deeper and deeper rut.
Joyce Meyer

Habit is necessary; it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive.
Edith Wharton

I tend to do something for two years then move on to something new. Yoga, then biking, then weight lifting, then back to biking. The moment it feels like a rut, I switch and search for a new love. It's like having a midlife crisis, but without the new wife or cheesy BMW.
Brad Meltzer

There's a very fine line between a groove and a rut; a fine line between eccentrics and people who are just plain nuts.
