#1. The most basic way to get someone's attention is this: Break a pattern. - Author: Chip Heath
Habit Pattern quotes by Chip Heath
#2. After you have planned each detail of an activity, organized a tray of materials, and practiced with them, you can model a cycle of activity with the child. Do so very slowly and methodically, pausing briefly after each step. Your child wants to imitate you but his thinking skills are limited. He relies on habit, pattern and repetition. - Author: Paula Polk Lillard
Habit Pattern quotes by Paula Polk Lillard
#3. If breaking a habit has been hard for you to do, hard for you even to face, then a helping hand is in order. - Author: Kenneth Schwarz
Habit Pattern quotes by Kenneth Schwarz
#4. Sadness isn't a kilesha, a habit pattern evoked by challenge. Sadness is what the mind feels when it is bereaved or bereft. All the wisdom in the world about the inevitability of change or the lawfulness of karma does not ease the heaviness in the mind that we feel when we lose someone, or something, we hold dear [p. 148]. - Author: Sylvia Boorstein
Habit Pattern quotes by Sylvia Boorstein
#5. [M]orality is not a ritualistic obedience to a code of behavior imposed by an external authority. It is rather a healthy habit pattern that you have consciously and voluntarily chosen to impose upon yourself because you recognize its superiority to your present behavior. - Author: Henepola Gunaratana
Habit Pattern quotes by Henepola Gunaratana
#6. Enlightenment is going beyond the normal thinking patterns of trigger-routine-and-reward habit loops. - Author: Amit Ray
Habit Pattern quotes by Amit Ray
#7. Still rarer is the man who thinks habitually, who applies reason, rather than habit pattern, to all his activity. Unless he masques himself, his is a dangerous life; he is regarded as queer, untrustworthy, subversive of public morals; he is a pink monkey among brown monkeys
a fatal mistake. Unless the pink monkey can dye himself brown before he is caught.
The brown monkey's instinct to kill is correct; such men are dangerous to all monkey customs.
Rarest of all is the man who can and does reason at all times, quickly, accurately, inclusively, despite hope or fear or bodily distress, without egocentric bias or thalmic disturbance, with correct memory, with clear distinction between fact, assumption, and non-fact. - Author: Robert A. Heinlein
Habit Pattern quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#8. Dietary research reveals that many people go off their nutritional diets on or about day 13 - a Fibonacci number. Yet if they can pass critical day 13 and make it through to day 21, they usually will succeed in losing weight and establishing the new habit pattern that allowed them to lose the weight. - Author: Robert Friedman
Habit Pattern quotes by Robert Friedman
#9. There was our house in New Orleans. Two blocks in front of us were these beautiful mansions and two blocks behind us were the ghetto, projects, and that's where I had to go to school, but I would always pattern my life looking forward. It was almost literal. - Author: Tyler Perry
Habit Pattern quotes by Tyler Perry
#10. People do sometimes change, of course. Habits, allegiances, dreams are all alterable, but only under extraordinary pressure - like great love, fear, grief. More often, people don't change. A girl who never missed a day of work does not suddenly decide to stay home in bed, for no good reason. - Author: Josephine Humphreys
Habit Pattern quotes by Josephine Humphreys
#11. ...the most reliable predictor of long-term marital success was a pattern in which the wives, in nonoffensive, clear ways, communicated their needs, and husbands willingly altered their behaviors to meet them. - Author: Terrence Real
Habit Pattern quotes by Terrence Real
#12. I think of music a lot when I paint. The theme of it to a degree is music. So instead of literally putting in music or literally putting in a musical instrument, I use only a hint of the instrument, but the brocaded pattern is like a line of Bach because of its order and the leaves going up are like passages from Vivaldi, and the emphasis on drapery is where the sound comes ... - Author: Nelson Shanks
Habit Pattern quotes by Nelson Shanks
#13. The sunlight sparkled through the wind-bent boughs of trees, dancing in an ever-shifting pattern - Author: S.D. Smith
Habit Pattern quotes by S.D. Smith
#14. Manifests a good person, a good character, a good habit, and also because good deeds gradually form good habits, good character, good persons. - Author: Peter Kreeft
Habit Pattern quotes by Peter Kreeft
#15. As he throws himself into one scheme after another, he draws lessons that improve his focus and judgment. He knits what he learns into mental models of investing, which he then uses to size up more complex opportunities and find his way through the weeds, plucking the telling details from masses of irrelevant information to reach the payoff at the end. These behaviors are what psychologists call "rule learning" and "structure building." People who as a matter of habit extract underlying principles or rules from new experiences are more successful learners than those who take their experiences at face value, failing to infer lessons that can be applied later in similar situations. Likewise, people who single out salient concepts from the less important information they encounter in new material and who link these key ideas into a mental structure are more successful learners than those who cannot separate wheat from chaff and understand how the wheat is made into flour. - Author: Peter C. Brown
Habit Pattern quotes by Peter C. Brown
#16. The United States can certainly defeat North Vietnam, but the United States cannot defeat a guerrilla war which is being raged from a sanctuary through a pattern of penetration, intervention, evasion, which is very difficult for a technologically advanced country like the United States to combat. - Author: Zbigniew Brzezinski
Habit Pattern quotes by Zbigniew Brzezinski
#17. The fact that Cincinnati thought I resembled him in any way sickened me. It made me want to run and hide. When I was a child in Detroit and terrors chased me, I would run to my hiding spot, a crawl space under the front porch of the boardinghouse we lived in. I'd wedge my small body into the cool brown earth and lie there, escaping the ugliness that was inevitably going on above me. I'd plug my ears with my fingers and hum to block out the remnants of Mother's toxic tongue or sharp backhand. It became a habit, humming, and a decade later, I was still doing it. Life had turned cold again, the safety of the cocoon under the porch was gone, and lying in the dirt had become a metaphor for my life. - Author: Ruta Sepetys
Habit Pattern quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#18. Most cannibalism is not a primitive or even a bestial habit. It is artificial and even artistic; a sort of art for art's sake. Men do not do it because they do not think it horrible; but, on the contrary, because they do think it horrible ... It is by no means clear, so far as I know that the Eskimos ever indulged in human sacrifice. They were not civilised enough. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Habit Pattern quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#19. The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do, - Author: Stephen R. Covey
Habit Pattern quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#20. Opportunity is all around us, but we have beliefs and habits that block it. - Author: Paul Buchheit
Habit Pattern quotes by Paul Buchheit
#21. It's amazing how much can happen in a few weeks on the road. This was going to become a habit to me; seeing new places would become like a drug. Better than drugs. And there was a whole world still to discover. I was as optimistic as a junkie in a poppy field. - Author: Chrissie Hynde
Habit Pattern quotes by Chrissie Hynde
#22. If a book were written all in numbers, it would be true. It would be just. Nothing said in words ever came out quite even. Things in words got twisted and ran together, instead of staying straight and fitting together. But underneath the words, at the center, like the center of the Square, it all came out even. Everything could change, yet nothing would be lost. If you saw the numbers you could see that, the balance, the pattern. You saw the foundations of the world. And they were solid. - Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
Habit Pattern quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#23. Research shows that sincere positive feelings--like love, care, gratitude, appreciation, compassion, or joy--smooth out our heart rhythm into a harmonious coherent pattern. - Author: Jed Diamond
Habit Pattern quotes by Jed Diamond
#24. So long as they (the Proles) continued to work and breed, their other activities were without importance. Left to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of ancestral pattern ... Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult. - Author: George Orwell
Habit Pattern quotes by George Orwell
#25. It is indeed not easy to distinguish affectation from habit; he that has once studiously developed a style, rarely writes afterwards with complete ease. - Author: Samuel Johnson
Habit Pattern quotes by Samuel Johnson
#26. The feet-on-the-stove stance of this book is a deliberate attempt to cure myself, and anyone else who will listen, of the nasty habit of worrying the world to pieces like a terrier with a rag. What we are up to here is not the hasty shaking loose of a culinary result, but a patient rumination on cooking itself. There are more important things to do than hurry. - Author: Robert Farrar Capon
Habit Pattern quotes by Robert Farrar Capon
#27. The historian does not locate known facts in a hypothetical, general pattern of processes; his aim is to link fact to fact, one unique knowable event to another individual one that begot it. - Author: Susanne Katherina Langer
Habit Pattern quotes by Susanne Katherina Langer
#28. It seems to me that I have always wanted to say the same thing in my books: that life is one, that mystery is all around us, that yeterday, today and tomorrow are all spread out in the pattern of eternity, together, and that although love may wear many faces in the incomprehensible panorama of time, in the heart that loves, it is always the same. - Author: Robert Nathan
Habit Pattern quotes by Robert Nathan
#29. The fear habit is very detrimental because you attract the things you fear. If we have any fear we need to get rid of it. - Author: Peace Pilgrim
Habit Pattern quotes by Peace Pilgrim
#30. I've always said that the 1986 [Immigration Reform and Control] Act had a fourth leg [in addition to law enforcement, increased immigration and amnesty] to its stool which was wishful thinking. And that pattern of a four-legged stool was copied in the failed attempts to enact a second and bigger general amnesty for illegal aliens in 2006, 2007, and in the current year 2013. - Author: Jan C. Ting
Habit Pattern quotes by Jan C. Ting
#31. Nice,' I say, realizing only afterward that I've mimicked her, a bad habit of mine; I'm like one of those animals that imitates its predators to survive. - Author: Melissa Bank
Habit Pattern quotes by Melissa Bank
#32. I read God's word when I am not suffering. And then I don't have to all of a sudden establish this habit when I am hurting. - Author: Anne Graham Lotz
Habit Pattern quotes by Anne Graham Lotz
#33. Winners develop the habit of doing the thing losers don't like to do. - Author: Ed Foreman
Habit Pattern quotes by Ed Foreman
#34. The subject of one experiment is a rat that receives mild electric shocks (roughly equivalent to the static shock you might get from scuffing your foot on a carpet). Over a series of these, the rat develops a prolonged stress-response: its heart rate and glucocorticoid secretion rate go up, for example. For convenience, we can express the long-term consequences by how likely the rat is to get an ulcer, and in this situation, the probability soars. In the next room, a different rat gets the same series of shocks - identical pattern and intensity; its allostatic balance is challenged to exactly the same extent. But this time, whenever the rat gets a shock, it can run over to a bar of wood and gnaw on it. The rat in this situation is far less likely to get an ulcer. You have given it an outlet for frustration. Other types of outlets work as well - let the stressed rat eat something, drink water, or sprint on a running wheel, and it is less likely to develop an ulcer. - Author: Robert M. Sapolsky
Habit Pattern quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#35. Myth is the practical metabolism of our soulish life, the logic of our obsessions and oversights for which we have no language or code. Myth is the "morality" that the ineffable puts upon us, our unaccountable imperatives, our inexplicably selective clarity and obscurity, the mortal one-sidedness of our talents and wits, the passion and apathy that make such a transient passage through our hapless minds; that weave a pattern of fatality others will see before we do. Myth is distinctively human or sublime higher-order instinct, the "reason" in culture that reason knows not of. - Author: Kenny Smith
Habit Pattern quotes by Kenny Smith
#36. Compare the air to a forest. When forest fires occur regularly, there is less fuel for any one fire, so the burns don't become conflagrations. If you prevent forest fires and build up a huge mass of living and dead wood in the forest, when a burn at last occurs, it is likely to be serious and large. When increased atmospheric carbon warms the air and when more vapor is available, conflagrational storms become more likely.
Will the pattern of storms be seen in the future as an anomaly? Or with so much more water vapor in the air, is it now normal? 'Everyone talks about global warming,' said Gavin Schmidt, head of the NASA climate models at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, 'but changes in rainfall often have a bigger impact. We're forcing the climate into a state we have not seen for millions of years - Author: William Bryant Logan
Habit Pattern quotes by William Bryant Logan
#37. How is it that people look at the same city and see such very different places? The answer lies in history, or, more accurately, in how people have chosen to remember the past. The habit of regarding culture and nature as binary categories has shaped how we view cities and their dynamic environments. The result is a kind of intellectual myopia in which 'history is experienced as nostalgia and nature as regret--as a horizon fast disappearing behind us. - Author: Matthew Klingle
Habit Pattern quotes by Matthew Klingle
#38. Along with our over-giving is our own conditional giving pattern, which can fuel so much of our resentment and feelings of "victimization" by the people to whom we are giving. We may be completely unaware of our expectations of those we assist, and our own anger and resentment may catch us off guard. This is why our martyrdom is so hard on those around us. They are aware of the price we are exacting, even when we are in denial about our own motives and expectations. - Author: Mary Crocker Cook
Habit Pattern quotes by Mary Crocker Cook
#39. fleas are like a bad habit - awfully hard to get rid of once you get them - Author: Haruki Murakami
Habit Pattern quotes by Haruki Murakami
#40. Lifting a goblet of wine to her lips, Evie glanced at him over the rim as she drank. "What is in that ledger?"
"A lesson in creative record keeping. I'm sure you won't be surprised to learn that Egan has been draining the club's accounts. He shaves away increments here and there, in small enough quantities that the thefts have gone unnoticed. But over time, it totals up to a considerable sum. God knows how many years he's been doing it. So far, every account book I've looked at contains deliberate inaccuracies."
"How can you be certain that they're deliberate?"
"There is a clear pattern." He flipped open a ledger and nudged it over to her. "The club made a profit of approximately twenty thousand pounds last Tuesday. If you cross-check the numbers with the record of loans, bank deposits, and cash outlays, you'll see the discrepancies."
Evie followed the trail of his finger as he ran it along the notes he had made in the margin. "You see?" he murmured. "These are what the proper amounts should be. He's padded the expenses liberally. The cost of ivory dice, for example. Even allowing for the fact that the dice are only used for one night and then never again, the annual charge should be no more than two thousand pounds, according to Rohan." The practice of using fresh dice every night was standard for any gaming club, to ward off any question that they might be loaded.
"But here it says that almost three thousand pounds was spent on dice," Evie murm - Author: Lisa Kleypas
Habit Pattern quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#41. Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch. - Author: Lili St. Crow
