Three Quotes on Habits

I found these quotes, I liked them so I decided to post them. : )
John Dryden "We first make our habits, and then our habits make us"
Confucius " Men's natures are alike; it is their habits that separate them."
Aristole "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit"

The Scarlet Pimpernel

Just recently I watched and read "The Scarlet Pimpernel" It was extremely good. (Personally I liked the book better) It was full of drama, romance and adventure. Set in the French Revolution,
the brave, daring, but elusive Scarlet Pimpernel (a.k.a Sir Percy Blakeney) risks his life to save french aristocrats from a terrible end facing "Madame la Gillotine. While trying to hide his secret identity from his newly wedded wife. (bad idea)
" We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in Heaven, or is he in-Hell
That damned, elusive Pimpernel."
-Sir Percy Blakeney
