Excellence and Habit

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

Aristotle (384-322), philosopher

This is a quote which I received from www.values.com— think about signing up to receive their quotes.  They center around various themes and always give me a lift.

And speaking of excellence–contemplate this amazing wild mushroom and goat cheese omelet from Le Pain Quotidienne in Washington, DC.  Live in the now with all of your senses.
