Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.

Habit is not mere subjugation, it is a tender tie; when one remembers habit it seems to have been happiness.

Habit is stronger than reason.

Habits are safer than rules; you don't have to watch them. And you don't have to keep them, either; they keep you.

He who does not get fun and enjoyment out of every day ... needs to reorganize his life.

He who every morning plans the transactions of the day and follows out that plan carries a thread that will guide him through the labyrinth of the most busy life. ... If the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incident, chaos will soon reign.

He who has lived a day has lived an age.

He's one of those Christmas Eve guys. There are people like that. . . every day in their lives is Christmas Eve.
