Habit & Life

This quote is from an article in an old Black Diamond catalog about a bunch of climbers driving from California to Patagonia in 1968. (The article is a little spicy.)

“Habit is the great deceiver. Habit is the child of the machine, trying to make an experience, a time, a thought or action the same as any other. No matter how good, worthwhile or beneficial in the beginning, habit always ends up draining the life out of the action, the juice out of thought and meaning out of result….Life has to be embraced, with no holds barred, throwing the whole show on the line as if there were no tomorrow and no yesterday either!”
