Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.
However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
