    Habits quotes by:    

The habit of always putting off an experience until you can afford it, or until the time is right, or until you know how to do it is one of the greatest burglars of joy. Be deliberate, but once you've made up your mind-jump in.

    Author: Chuck Swindoll

So fixed are our spirits in slothfulness and cold indifference that we seldom overcome so much as one evil habit.

    Author: Thomas a Kempis

Habit is overcome by habit.

    Author: Thomas a Kempis

A mistaken thought may be corrected easily, but an errant affection is nearly unmanageable.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Manners - the habits of the people - are bred in family and church. Therefore, it isn't an issue of laws but of habits and manners.

    Author: Chuck Colson

Spiritual strongholds begin with a thought. One thought becomes a consideration. A consideration develops into an attitude, which leads then to action. Action repeated becomes a habit, and a habit establishes a "power base for the enemy," that is, a stronghold.

I had this little recording playing in my head for years and years and years, what's wrong with me, what's wrong with me, what's wrong with me?

    Author: Joyce Meyer

If any occupation or association is found to hinder our communion with God or our enjoyment of spiritual things, then it must be abandoned. Anything in my habits or ways which mars happy fellowship with the brethren or robs me of power in service, is to be unsparingly judged and made an end of-- 'burned.' Whatever I cannot do for God's glory must be avoided.

    Author: A.W. Pink

An individual Christian may see fit to give up all sorts of things for special reasons - marriage, or meat, or beer, or cinema; but the moment he starts saying the things are bad in themselves, or looking down his nose at other people who do use them, he has taken the wrong turning.

    Author: C.S. Lewis

Experience tells me that people's hearts are seldom changed if they are not changed when young. Seldom indeed are men converted when they are old. Habits have deep roots. Once sin is allowed to settle in your heart, it will not be turned out at your bidding. Custom becomes second nature, and its chains are not easily broken.
