1. "Habits have been compared to handcuffs, easily put on and difficult to rid one's self of.

    Virtue is born of good habits, and the formation of habits may be said to constitute almost the whole work of education."

    Personally I think that to say education is mostly habit-building is a little overkill. But as someone who has build too few good habits over the course of formal education, this advice really hits home for me.

    I also really do believe that goodness is a practice and not a state - and a continual one at that. Jay Smooth touches on this in this excellent TED talk. The whole thing is very worthwhile.
