Wisdom Quotes

These quotations were taken from Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I greatly benefited from it and that is why I'm sharing these quotes. I will post a review of his book soon.

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle

"We must not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time." T.S. Eliot
