I have a bad habit of wolfing down things that catch my eye.Katze Snow Bad Habit Sayings By Katze Snow: I have a bad habit of wolfing down things that catch my eye.
Many a bad habit is developed through overindulgence, and many a good one by chastisement; therefore, beat your son as well as your pupil; never indulge them.Chanakya Bad Habit Sayings By Chanakya: Many a bad habit is developed through overindulgence, and many a good one by chastisement;
Do not oversleep and miss the school bus-
you'll be late.
That's a habit teachers generally
don't appreciate.
Never tell your friends at school
that you still wet your bed.
They are sure to tease you,
and you'll wish that you were dead.

Never call your teacher a name
when she's not near you.
Teachers' ears are excellent,
so they can always hear you.

Do not read a textbook when your hands
aren't clean-it's tricky
to separate the pages when the pages
get real sticky.
When you go out for a team
it's always wise to practice.
When you are a substitute,
the bench can feel like cactus.

Do not copy homework from a friend
who is a dummy.
If you do, I'm sure that you
will get a grade that's crummy.

And if your report card's bad,
don't blame it on your buddy.
Kiss up to your parents quick,
or they might make you study.
Bruce Lansky Bad Habit Sayings By Bruce Lansky: Do not oversleep and miss the school bus-you'll be late.That's a habit teachers generally don't
But always there was the voice at the back of his head telling him that by joining the Rebellion he'd become less of a rebel than he'd ever been. Flying off to assault yet another impossibly well-defended Imperial stronghold. It was getting to be a bad habit.James S.A. Corey Bad Habit Sayings By James S.A. Corey: But always there was the voice at the back of his head telling him that
One bad habit often spoils a dozen good ones.Napoleon Hill Bad Habit Sayings By Napoleon Hill: One bad habit often spoils a dozen good ones.
I don't think it's illegal. I don't think it's against the rules. It's as dangerous for me to have a toothpick in your mouth as it is to have a 200-pound man punch me in the face hard or try to kick me in the face. I'm more worried about that, to be honest. I don't have any superstitions. I won world titles with a toothpick. I defended it without a toothpick. It all depends. Sometimes I do it, sometimes I don't. It's a bad habit. I know I shouldn't do it, but it's fine.Benson Henderson Bad Habit Sayings By Benson Henderson: I don't think it's illegal. I don't think it's against the rules. It's as dangerous
I have a bad habit of dropping verbal pellets to get a reaction, like Ursula LeGuin's "A novelist's business is lying" (that particular one got a lot of attention on Facebook), or, "Why is it that Christians hate the word 'sex'?Chila Woychik Bad Habit Sayings By Chila Woychik: I have a bad habit of dropping verbal pellets to get a reaction, like Ursula
The really good thing about using people who are really green is that you don't have to erase a bunch of bad habits and then put good ones in.

The usual bad poem in somebody's Collected Works is a learned, mannered, valued habit, a habit a little more careful than, and little emptier than, brushing one's teeth.Randall Jarrell Bad Habit Sayings By Randall Jarrell: The usual bad poem in somebody's Collected Works is a learned, mannered, valued habit, a

We have a bad habit of seeing books as sort of cheaply made movies where the words do nothing but create visual narratives in our heads.
So too often what passes for literary criticism is "I couldn't picture that guy", or "I liked that part", or "this part shouldn't have happened." That is, we've left language so far behind that sometimes we judge quality solely based on a story's actions.
So we can appreciate a novel that constructs its conflicts primarily through plot - the layered ambiguity of a fatal car accident caused by a vehicle owned by Gatsby but driven by someone else, for instance. But in this image-drenched world, sometimes we struggle to appreciate and celebrate books where the quality arises not exclusively from plot but also from the language itself.
John Green Bad Habit Sayings By John Green: We have a bad habit of seeing books as sort of cheaply made movies where
Being an absolute ruler today was not as simple as people thought. At least, it was not simple if your ambitions included being an absolute ruler tomorrow. There were subtleties. Oh, you could order men to smash down doors and drag people off the dungeons without trial, but too much of that sort of thing lacked style and anyway was bad for business, habit-forming and very, very dangerous for your health. A thinking tyrant, it seemed to Vetinari, had a much harder job than a ruler raised to power by some idiot vote-yourself-rich system like democracy. At least they could tell the people he was their fault.Terry Pratchett Bad Habit Sayings By Terry Pratchett: Being an absolute ruler today was not as simple as people thought. At least, it
HYPOTHESES: Evil is boring. Cynicism is idiotic. Fear is a bad habit. Despair is lazy. Joy is fascinating. Love is an act of heroic genius. Pleasure is our birthright. Receptivity is a superpower.Rob Brezsny Bad Habit Sayings By Rob Brezsny: HYPOTHESES: Evil is boring. Cynicism is idiotic. Fear is a bad habit. Despair is lazy.
When things were bad, time had a habit of taking its time to pass, making sure you experienced every painful moment. When things were good and contentment abundant, time moved like the wind, hurrying precious moments along and forcing things that normally require nurturing to grow and forge quickly.Bernice L. McFadden Bad Habit Sayings By Bernice L. McFadden: When things were bad, time had a habit of taking its time to pass, making
I have seen too many men wilt and go silly under a little light, and then they continue to write and get published, turning out pure crap under a name that has become a bad habit. The next poem is all that counts. You can't stand on past poems.Charles Bukowski Bad Habit Sayings By Charles Bukowski: I have seen too many men wilt and go silly under a little light, and
I think I would have had an easier time of it if I had had training much earlier. Because when I got to the training, it was in my late 30s and I already probably had every bad habit a singer could have. In fact, it still goes on. It's un-training those habits and retraining new ones - the breathing, the relaxation, the tongue, the lungs, the everything.Joan Baez Bad Habit Sayings By Joan Baez: I think I would have had an easier time of it if I had had
You can never go wrong betting on Americans' bad eating habits. So I've made a ton investing in all fast food chains, while at the same time investing in Dockers, spandex, Spanx, and sweatpants. Basically, anything with an elastic waistband is a goldmine.Carol Leifer Bad Habit Sayings By Carol Leifer: You can never go wrong betting on Americans' bad eating habits. So I've made a

Kelly has a rather bad habit of interrupting.Jack Osbourne Bad Habit Sayings By Jack Osbourne: Kelly has a rather bad habit of interrupting.
Common sense was exactly what kingship, almost by definition, lacked: when the king's orders were executed no one dared to tell him honestly how they had turned out. With the absolute powers bestowed by kingship came an arrogance, a ruthlessness, an inflexibility, a habit of compulsion, an unwillingness to listen to reason, that no small community would have endured from any of its members-though the aggressive and humanly disagreeable qualities that make for such ambitious leadership might be found anywhere-as Margaret Mead discovered among the Mundugumor, whose leaders were known to the community as "really bad men," aggressive, gluttonous for power and prestige.Lewis Mumford Bad Habit Sayings By Lewis Mumford: Common sense was exactly what kingship, almost by definition, lacked: when the king's orders were
Civilization is an experiment, a very recent way of life in the human career, and it has a habit of walking into what I am calling progress traps. A small village on good land beside a river is a good idea; but when the village grows into a city and paves over the good land, it becomes a bad idea. While prevention might have been easy, a cure may be impossible: a city isn't easily moved. This human inability to foresee
or to watch out for
long-range consequences may be inherent to our kind, shaped by the millions of years when we lived from hand to mouth by hunting and gathering. It may also be little more than a mix of inertia, greed, and foolishness encouraged by the shape of the social pyramid. The concentration of power at the top of large-scale societies gives the elite a vested interest in the status quo; they continue to prosper in darkening times long after the environment and general populace begin to suffer. (109)
Ronald Wright Bad Habit Sayings By Ronald Wright: Civilization is an experiment, a very recent way of life in the human career, and
Have you ever tried to quit a bad habit, one that has come to define you? To cease using a substance--any substance--that you not only need but enjoy? To stop yourself from lighting up that cigarette? It's going to kill you, but hey, you're going to die someday anyway, why not die happy, why not die buzzed, why not die satisfied? Why not die sooner, with fewer regrets, than later?Ellen Hopkins Bad Habit Sayings By Ellen Hopkins: Have you ever tried to quit a bad habit, one that has come to define
It's impossible for me to feel like there's only one way to do a thing. There's nothing wrong with having one way of doing it, but I think it's a bad habit. I believe in range. Like, there's a lot of tunes that I play all the time-sometimes I hear 'em in a different register. And if you don't have complete freedom, or you won't let yourself get away from that one straight line, oh, my goodness, that's too horrible to even think about.Wes Montgomery Bad Habit Sayings By Wes Montgomery: It's impossible for me to feel like there's only one way to do a thing.

The arbitrary rule of a just and enlightened prince is always bad. His virtues are the most dangerous and the surest form of seduction: they lull a people imperceptibly into the habit of loving, respecting, and serving his successor, whoever that successor may be, no matter how wicked or stupid.Denis Diderot Bad Habit Sayings By Denis Diderot: The arbitrary rule of a just and enlightened prince is always bad. His virtues are
This bad habit of fault-finding, criticizing and complaining is a tool that grows keener by constant use, and there is grave danger that he who at first is only a moderate kicker may develop into a chronic knocker, and the knife he has sharpened will sever his head.

Nine times out of ten, failure is resorting to Plan B when Plan A gets too risky, too costly, or too difficult. That's why most people are living their Plan B. They didn't burn the ships. Plan A people don't have a Plan B...

There are moments in life when we need to burn the ships to our past. We do so by making a defining decision that will eliminate the possibility of sailing back to the old world we left behind. You burn the ships named Past Failure and Past Success. You burn the ship named Bad Habit. You burn the ship named Regret. You burn the ship named Guilt. You burn the ship named My Old Way of Life.
Mark Batterson Bad Habit Sayings By Mark Batterson: Nine times out of ten, failure is resorting to Plan B when Plan A gets

When faced with problems, people often fall into the habit of accepting the "either/or" options presented to them as solutions.

By playing at Chess then, we may learn: First: Foresight ... Second: Circumspection ... Third: Caution ...

I have full faith in people. I think that we have the ability to change. We're habitual creatures. Once we figure out that bad habit and identify it, whether it's behavioral or whatever it may be, we change our habits. Obviously, I'm simplifying it and making it sound very easy to do, and we all know it's very difficult, but it's doable.Eva Mendes Bad Habit Sayings By Eva Mendes: I have full faith in people.

If one bad thing befell me, I immediately linked it to every bad thing that had happened in the last week or might happen in the coming week.

We are in the habit of rating our lives in real time - a sad day, a nice visit, a terrible commute, a good meditation - qualifying and quantifying everything. There are actually neither unequivocally good nor bad events, things, or people - only the wanted and the unwanted - and everything is subjective. This is strong medicine; think about it. It's a matter of perspective.Lama Surya Das Bad Habit Sayings By Lama Surya Das: We are in the habit of rating our lives in real time - a sad

We live in an era of social science, and have become accustomed to understanding the social world in terms of "forces," "pressures," "processes," and "developments." It is easy to forget that those "forces" are statistical summaries of the deeds of millions of men and women who act on their beliefs in pursuit of their desires. The habit of submerging the individual into abstractions can lead not only to bad science (it's not as if the "social forces" obeyed Newton's laws) but to dehumanization.Steven Pinker Bad Habit Sayings By Steven Pinker: We live in an era of social science, and have become accustomed to understanding the

Noooooo!Noooooo! Noooooooo!" I rubbed my hand against the sheet till the skin turned red and sore.But all the rubbing and scrubbing wouldn't make it go away. It was permanent, that tattoo.

This wasn't happening to me.Shuchi Singh Kalra Bad Habit Sayings By Shuchi Singh Kalra: Noooooo!Noooooo! Noooooooo!" I rubbed my hand against the sheet till the skin turned red and
married life is merely a habit, a bad habit.Oscar Wilde Bad Habit Sayings By Oscar Wilde: married life is merely a habit, a bad habit.
I have received your new book against the human race, and thank you for it. Never was such a cleverness used in the design of making us all stupid. One longs, in reading your book, to walk on all fours. But as I have lost that habit for more than sixty years, I feel unhappily the impossibility of resuming it. Nor can I embark in search of the savages of Canada, because the maladies to which I am condemned render a European surgeon necessary to me; because war is going on in those regions; and because the example of our actions has made the savages nearly as bad as ourselves. [in response to Rousseau's "The Social Contract"]Voltaire Bad Habit Sayings By Voltaire: I have received your new book against the human race, and thank you for it.
And I just want to tell you, at some point it doesn't matter who was right and who was wrong. At some point, being
angry is just another bad habit, like smoking, and you keep poisoning
yourself without thinking about it.
Jonathan Tropper Bad Habit Sayings By Jonathan Tropper: And I just want to tell you, at some point it doesn't matter who was
If you do not pour water on your plant, what will happen? It will slowly wither and die. Our habits will also slowly wither and die away if we do not give them an opportunity to manifest. You need not fight to stop a habit. Just don't give it an opportunity to repeat itself. (67)Swami Satchidananda Bad Habit Sayings By Swami Satchidananda: If you do not pour water on your plant, what will happen? It will slowly
No war ought ever to be undertaken but under circumstances which render all intercourse of courtesy between the combatants impossible. It is a bad thing that men should hate each other; but it is far worse that they should contract the habit of cutting one another's throats without hatred. War is never lenient but where it is wanton; when men are compelled to fight in self-defence, they must hate and avenge: this may be bad; but it is human nature.Thomas B. Macaulay Bad Habit Sayings By Thomas B. Macaulay: No war ought ever to be undertaken but under circumstances which render all intercourse of
Until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad there is in others, you will be neither successful nor happy.Napoleon Hill Bad Habit Sayings By Napoleon Hill: Until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad
Of course married life is merely a habit, a bad habit. But then one regrets the loss even of one's worse habits.Oscar Wilde Bad Habit Sayings By Oscar Wilde: Of course married life is merely a habit, a bad habit. But then one regrets
My father has the irritating habit of saying the same thing whenever something bad happens. "This, too, shall pass," he says. What annoys me is that he's always right about it. What annoys me even more is that he always reminds me later when it does pass, as a smug "I told you so."

He doesn't say it to me anymore because Mom told him it was trite. Maybe it is, but I find that I say it to myself now. No matter how bad I'm feeling, I make myself say it, even if I'm not ready to believe it. This, too, shall pass. It's amazing how little things like that can make a big difference.
Neal Shusterman Bad Habit Sayings By Neal Shusterman: My father has the irritating habit of saying the same thing whenever something bad happens.

Work, my boy! forget me for a few years; I'd only give you bad advice; don't mention our meeting to your uncle- it might do you harm; don't think about an old man who would be dead long since, were it not for his dear habit of coming here every day and finding his old friends on these shelves.Jules Verne Bad Habit Sayings By Jules Verne: Work, my boy! forget me for a few years; I'd only give you bad advice;
There just isn't enough cock in this world to be caught suckin' and be called anything but a slut for life. The cynic in me would call it a bad habit, but that'd make me a whore in denial and if there's one thing I am, it's an honest bitch. Then again, you don't get famous for being daddy's little angel, but you can easily fall into the Infamy Bracket by preaching a made-up Bible quote now and again. They say I'm shallow, but I've made a living out off diving off the deep end.Dave Matthes Bad Habit Sayings By Dave Matthes: There just isn't enough cock in this world to be caught suckin' and be called

All day long the thoughts that occupy your mind, your Secret Place, as Jesus calls it, are moulding your destiny for good or evil; in fact, the truth is that the whole of our life's experience is but the outer expression of inner thought. Now we can choose the sort of thoughts that we entertain. It will be a little difficult to break a bad habit of thought, but it can be done. We can choose how we shall think - in point of fact, we always do choose - and therefore our lives are just the result of the kind of thoughts we haveEmmet Fox Bad Habit Sayings By Emmet Fox: All day long the thoughts that occupy your mind, your Secret Place, as Jesus calls
The best way to stop a bad habit is never to begin it.James Cash Penney Bad Habit Sayings By James Cash Penney: The best way to stop a bad habit is never to begin it.
Upon occasion we should go as far as intoxication ... Drink washes cares away, stirs the mind from its lowest depths ... But in liberty moderation is wholesome, and so it is in wine ... We ought not indulge too often, for fear the mind contract a bad habit, yet it is right to draw it toward elation and release and to banish dull sobriety for a little.Seneca The Younger Bad Habit Sayings By Seneca The Younger: Upon occasion we should go as far as intoxication ... Drink washes cares away, stirs
I don't think I'm an exceptionally bad reader. I suspect that many people, maybe even most, are like me. We read and read and read,
and we forget and forget and forget. So why do we bother? Michel de Montaigne expressed the dilemma of extensive reading in the
sixteenth century: "I leaf through books, I do not study them," he wrote. "What I retain of them is something I no longer recognize as anyone else's.
It is only the material from which my judgment has profited, and the thoughts and ideas with which it has become imbued;
the author, the place, the words, and other circumstances, I immediately forget." He goes on to explain how "to compensate a
little for the treachery and weakness of my memory," he adopted the habit of writing in the back of every book a short critical
judgment, so as to have at least some general idea of what the tome was about and what he thought of it.
Joshua Foer Bad Habit Sayings By Joshua Foer: I don't think I'm an exceptionally bad reader. I suspect that many people, maybe even
It is not a bad idea to get in the habit of writing down one's thoughts. It saves one having to bother anyone else with them.Isabel Colegate Bad Habit Sayings By Isabel Colegate: It is not a bad idea to get in the habit of writing down one's
The truth is, you don't break a bad habit; you replace it with a good one.Denis Waitley Bad Habit Sayings By Denis Waitley: The truth is, you don't break a bad habit; you replace it with a good
Obsessing on evil is boring. Rousing fear is a hackneyed shtick. Wallowing is despair is a bad habit. Indulging in cynicism is akin to committing a copycat crime.Rob Brezsny Bad Habit Sayings By Rob Brezsny: Obsessing on evil is boring. Rousing fear is a hackneyed shtick. Wallowing is despair is

Everytime you feed the flesh, you strenghten it. This is good if you are trying to build a good habit, but detrimental if you are trying to stop a bad habit. The way to "kill the flesh" is to starve it; to stop feeding it.Joyce Meyer Bad Habit Sayings By Joyce Meyer: Everytime you feed the flesh, you strenghten it. This is good if you are trying
