but about conscious appreciation
of the experience of living.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

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

- Charles Darwin

To state the facts frankly
is not to despair the future nor indict the past.
The prudent heir takes careful inventory of his legacies
and gives a faithful accounting
to those whom he owes an obligation of trust.
- John F. Kennedy

False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science,
for they often endure long; but false views,
if supported by some evidence, do little harm,
for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness.
- Charles Darwin

Every religion is true one way or another.
It is true when understood metaphorically.
But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors,
interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble.

the present is part of eternity.
- Osho

Friends love misery, in fact.
Sometimes, especially if we are too lucky
or too successful or too pretty,

The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born -

have certain charismatic qualities or not.
That's nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true.
Leaders are made rather than born.
- Warren G. Bennis

Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition.
The immature mind often mistakes one for the other,
or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy -
in fact, they're almost incompatible;
one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

Every natural fact is a symbol of some spiritual fact.
Every appearance in nature corresponds to some state of the mind,

But he is my biggest pride.

The game of thought is, on the appearance

in the struggle ought not to deter us
from the support of a cause we believe to be just.

in politics, in religion, in philosophy,
as cause for withdrawing from a friend.

But any action is better than no action at all.
- Norman Vincent Peale

Don't aim at success.
The more you aim at it and make it a target,

the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication
to a cause greater than oneself.
