Favourite Routine

Famous quotes containing the words favourite and/or routine:

    On his favourite subject of subordination, Johnson said, “So far is it from being true that men are naturally equal, that no two people can be half an hour together, but one shall acquire an evident superiority over the other.”
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Manners are the happy way of doing things; each once a stroke of genius or of love—now repeated and hardened into usage. They form at last a rich varnish, with which the routine of life is washed, and its details adorned. If they are superficial, so are the dewdrops which give such depth to the morning meadows.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
