A Charlotte Mason Moment

Each of us has in his possession an exceedingly good servant or a very bad master, known as Habit.

“Nobody can do well what he has not had a good deal of practice in doing; and you may depend upon it that the useful members of a family have had much practice in being of use, that is, they have looked out for their chances.

“Each of us has in his possession an exceedingly good servant or a very bad master, known as Habit. The heedless, listless person is a servant of habit; the useful, alert person is the master of a valuable habit.” (Home Education by Charlotte M. Mason Vol. 4, Book1, p. 208)
