Quotes to Live By

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. (Aristotle)

Imagine what it would be like to change from Cinderella to a princess. Some people have this instant "luck", whereas others have to slave their way up the feudal system of society. Nowadays, anyone can "look" like a princess with a change of new clothes or a new hairstyle. A poor person can instantly look rich, if given a sports car, along with a new suit. A homey and plain woman when given a complete makeover can look like a model.

Although these changes are superficial, we as human beings still fall for the same old act each time. When I first got my haircut a few days ago, I was reminded that I was still the same person inside, even though my outer appearance has changed. I look different, but my heart is still the same. No matter how much I change myself on the outside, our heavenly father from above only looks at our hearts.

So to change ourselves, we should do it from the inside out, instead of the other way around.
