Good Quotes on Good Habits

 

Heroic spiritual lives are built by stacking days of obedience one on top of the other. Like a brick each obedient act is small in itself, but in time the acts will pile up, and a huge wall of strong character will be built – a great defense against temptation.

Hannah More

Ovid
