Famous quotes containing the words habit and/or religious:
“... habit starts at the second crime. At the first one, something is ending.”

“Each religious sect has its own physiognomy. The Methodists have acquired a face; the Quakers, a face; the nuns, a face. An Englishman will pick out a dissenter by his manners.”
