I think certain types of processes don’t allow for any variation. If you have to be part of that process, all you can do is transform—or perhaps distort—yourself through that persistent repetition, and make that process a part of your own personality. [Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running]
It is a funny thing how we build or deconstruct habits. If we jump right into a BIG Change in how we live Life or DO whatever it is we DO, oftener than NOT we will fail.
Perhaps failing repeatedly helps us to see that Change, BIG or small Change, is made by tiny repetitions building one upon the other into successes.
The happiness of most people is not ruined by great catastrophes or fatal errors, but by the repetition of slowly destructive little things. [Ernest Dimnet]
Somedays it is the simplest insight that turns me round and starts me moving in a more Right-for-me direction. Whatever is done, day in and day out, is the key to why I call a thing Good or NOT.
This is the lesson that history teaches: repetition. [Gertrude Stein]
The habits of a people are no different than the habits of a person. Perhaps we can BEcome what we most often envision and imagine for ourselves…
I love you, Currie
