Celebration of Discipline :: Study

The Discipline of Study

“…the mind will always take on a order conforming to the order upon which it concentrates.”

“What we study determines the kind of habits that are formed, which is why Paul urges us to focus on things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and gracious.”

“Repetition regularly channels the mind in a specific direction, thus ingraining habits of thought…It is not even important that the person believe what he or she is repeating, only that it be repeated. The inner mind is thus trained and will eventually respond by modifying behavior to conform to the affirmation.”

“Study simply cannot happen until we are willing to be subject to the subject matter.”

“Experience is the only way we can interpret and relate to what we read.”
