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

Oscar Wilde

“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”

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

“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

“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!

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

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

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Most sane human beings’ chances of being alive in a thousand years’ time are a hundred times higher than their chances of being sincerely happy for at least ten consecutive days.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

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

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

“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

“Consistency is important. Doing a good thing only once or twice or a few times is not sufficient. You've gotta do the good things repetitively and indefinitely. You've gotta do the good things over and over and over again. When you are consistent, people trust you and respect you.”
Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr

“If you are constantly failing in something then it means that you are getting smarter for that thing every day than anyone else in this world.”
Anuj Jasani

“Devotion is very necessary to achieve something big, without complete dedication towards one thing no one has ever achieved anything big in their life.”
Anuj Jasani

Reena Doss
“Fire in seasonal weather can only be extinguished by the consistent waves of unwavering love.”
Reena Doss

“Me at 7: What do you want? I want to live forever.
Me at 77: What do you want? I want to live forever.”
Marty Rubin

“Keep cool under pressure. Don’t waver from what is right. Stay the course.”

Michelle Huneven
“I decided to make the seafood chowder I first ate twenty years ago in the English Market in Cork, Ireland---or at least my own version of that smoky, tomato-based soup with cod, scallops, clams, and shrimp; sometimes (in Ireland), it had periwinkles (sea snails) and enough smoked haddock to give it a wonderful campfire tang. Of course, I had to skip the periwinkles and for the smokiness I made do with frozen finnan haddie. I'd worked on the recipe over the years, cranking the flavors so that when I finally went back to the English Market a couple of years ago, their chowder was so bland and watery that Jack didn't believe it was the same soup I made at home. It was possible that the Irish cook was having a bad day, or someone was trying to stretch the last bit of a used-up batch, or they'd made the recipe from memory for so long, it had ceased being itself---a chef at a good restaurant here in Los Angeles once told me that vigilance is the key to consistency, and that if she or a trusted supervisor didn't keep an eye on the plates as they came out of the kitchen, a dish could become unrecognizable within hours.”
Michelle Huneven, Search
