Ralph Waldo Emerson
“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — 'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

“It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It's what we do consistently.”

Jim Rohn

“One bulb at a time. There was no other way to do it. No shortcuts--simply loving the slow process of planting. Loving the work as it unfolded. Loving an achievement that grew slowly and bloomed for only three weeks each year.”
Jaroldeen Asplund Edwards, The Daffodill Principle

Arthur Conan Doyle
“It has always seemed to me that so long as you produce your dramatic effect, accuracy of detail matters little. I have never striven for it and I have made some bad mistakes in consequence. What matter if I hold my readers?”
Arthur Conan Doyle

Holly Mosier
“Perfection of effort is not required, by the way. It is the consistency of attempting to work these tools that brings the progress. It’s like anything else. If I want to tone muscle, lifting a ten-pound weight a few times every day will move me toward my goal much quicker than hoisting a fifty-pound barbell once a week. Yes, it really is true: “Slow and steady wins the race.” Just try a little, every day. You’ll see.”
Holly Mosier

Samuel Butler
“Having, then, once introduced an element of inconsistency into his system, he was far too consistent not to be inconsistent consistently, and he lapsed ere long into an amiable indifferentism which to outward appearance differed but little from the indifferentism …”
Samuel Butler

“Do not do what you cannot continue to deliver.
For, remember, the world wants to see a continuity of delivery of
set standards...!”
Sujit Lalwani, Life Simplified!

Sylvia Plath
“A skeptic, I would ask for consistency first of all.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Charles Dickens
“He had been educated in no habits of application and concentration. The system which had addressed him in exactly the same manner as it had addressed hundreds of other boys, all varying in character and capacity, had enabled him to dash through his tasks, always with fair credit and often with distinction, but in a fitful, dazzling way that had confirmed his reliance on those very qualities in himself which it had been most desirable to direct and train. They were good qualities, without which no high place can be meritoriously won, but like fire and water, though excellent servants, they were very bad masters. If they had been under Richard’s direction, they would have been his friends; but Richard being under their direction, they became his enemies.”
Charles Dickens, Bleak House

Toba Beta
“Subjectivity measures nothing consistently.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Anthony Liccione
“God is like a mirror, consistent, stable, unchanging; reflecting His image of us, that is always changing.”
Anthony Liccione

Thomas Henry Huxley
“The tendency to variation in living beings, which all admitted as a matter of fact; the selective influence of conditions, which no one could deny to be a matter of fact, when his attention was drawn to the evidence; and the occurrence of great geological changes which also was matter of fact; could be used as the only necessary postulates of a theory of the evolution of plants and animals which, even if not at once, competent to explain all the known facts of biological science, could not be shown to be inconsistent with any.”
Thomas Henry Huxley, The Advance of Science in the Last Half-Century

Mehmet Murat ildan
“If you try to be consistent, you tie yourself to a rock and you restrict your own movements! Don’t do this! Let all the paths are reachable without any obstacle! Free yourself from the consistency!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Israelmore Ayivor
“Do it again and again. Consistency makes the rain drops to create holes in the rock. Whatever is difficult can be done easily with regular attendance, attention and action.”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

“The public never appears to tire of endless courses of strawberries and cream, and the theory that you run the risk of boring people with endless photo montages of the Chelsea Pensioners in their dress reds, or close-ups of a Pimm's Cup sprouting all kinda of flora, has yet to be proven. People like Wimbledon in the same way they like blue jeans or even their own spouses: for the pleasure yielded by their reliable sameness.”
Peter Bodo, Courts of Babylon

Israelmore Ayivor
“Everyday should be a working day on those difficult tasks. A little bit per day is the only way to make it through. Never feel it can't be done; it can be done with persistent actions, repeated input and consistent attendance!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

“To the average mathematician who merely wants to know his work is securely based, the most appealing choice is to avoid difficulties by means of Hilbert's program. Here one regards mathematics as a formal game and one is only concerned with the question of consistency ... . The Realist position is probably the one which most mathematicians would prefer to take. It is not until he becomes aware of some of the difficulties in set theory that he would even begin to question it. If these difficulties particularly upset him, he will rush to the shelter of Formalism, while his normal position will be somewhere between the two, trying to enjoy the best of two worlds.”
Paul Cohen

“If you’re not consistently carrying out your plan ninety percent of the time, you really don’t have a plan at all.”
Alwyn Cosgrove

“Consistency also teaches us that some things do not change, though we may wish they would. Not everything bends to our personal preferences.”
Kim John Payne, Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids

“I am always running 5 minutes later than the latest you'll think I would be”
Jon R. Michaelsen

“life is hard to explain, difficult to understand but you still need life.”
Malik Daniyal Sakhawat

“The only consistent thing in this world,
is INC☮NSiS♱ENCY”
L V HALL
