“Quote of the Day By Someone Who’s Smarter Than I Am, But Who Has, On Occasion, Been Known To Think Along the Same Lines”

William James Quotation Number Six:

Could the young but realize they will soon become mere walking bundles of habits, they would give more heed to their conduct while in the plastic state.

Bonus Quotation:

Genius…means little more than thinking in an unhabitual way.

Considering both quotations: Maybe that’s why many people’s most original work is accomplished when they’re young.

It's no wonder this James guy gave up Jamesisms in favor of the Baseball Abstract.

Always posting at 4 a.m., you have become a mere waking bundle of habits, Earl.
