Quote of the Day (William James, on Life as a ‘Mass of Habits’)

“Our virtues are habits as much as our vices. All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits,—practical, emotional, and intellectual,—systematically organized for our weal or woe, and bearing us irresistibly toward our destiny, whatever the latter may be.” —American philosopher William James (1842-1910), The Principles of Psychology (1890)
