The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude to me is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money,
than circumstances, than failures, than success,
than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill.
It will make or break a company ... a church ... a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day
regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past ...
we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the string we have,
and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me
and 90 percent how I react to it.
And so it is with you ...
we are in charge of our attitudes.
- Charles Swindoll

Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say,

and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion.

than that of blindfolded fear.
- Thomas Jefferson

The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born -

Leaders are made rather than born.
- Warren G. Bennis

He didn't come out of my belly, but my God,
I've made his bones, because I've attended to every meal,
and how he sleeps,
and the fact that he swims like a fish
because I took him to the ocean.
I'm so proud of all those things.
But he is my biggest pride.
- John Lennon

not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses.

But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.

The mind exists in time, in fact the mind is time;

the present is part of eternity.
- Osho

one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

To say that authority, whether secular or religious,
supplies no ground for morality
is not to deny the obvious fact that it supplies a sanction.

that men have written good verses
under the inspiration of passion,
who cannot write well under other circumstances.

Every fact is related on one side to sensation,
and, on the other, to morals.
The game of thought is, on the appearance
of one of these two sides,
to find the other: given the upper, to find the under side.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

which in the past has been brought to public life

Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
- Anonymous

and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
