Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us.

John N. Mitchell

The men and women who have the right ideals ... are those who have the courage to strive for the happiness which comes only with labor and effort and self-sacrifice, and those whose joy in life springs in part from power of work and sense of duty.

Theodore Roosevelt

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, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday 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 one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Charles R. Swindoll

Life begets life. Energy becomes energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.

Sarah Bernhardt

We continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves perfectly, we should die.

Albert Camus

Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life.

Albert Einstein

Personality is that which is most intimate to me--that by which I must act out my life. It is that by which I belong to man, that by which I am able to reach after God; and He has given to me this pearl of great price. It is an immortal treasure; it is mine, it is His, and no man shall pluck it out of His hand.

Hugh Reginald Haweis

The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.

Mark Twain

Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is not mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself.

Havelock Ellis

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.

Albert Einstein

The purpose of life is to fight maturity.

Dick Werthimer

You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.

E. B. White

Go cherish your soul; express companions; set your habits to a life of solitude; then will the faculties rise fair and full within.

Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803

Don't sacrifice your life to work and ideals. The most important things in life are human relations. I found that out too late.

Katharine Susannah Prichard 1883

Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.

Gustave Flaubert

Intelligence makes clear to us the interrelationship of means and ends. But mere thinking cannot give us a sense of the ultimate and fundamental ends. To make clear these fundamental ends and valuations and to set them fast in the emotional life of the individual, seems to me precisely the most important function which religion has to form in the social life of man.

Albert Einstein

The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully have been kindness, beauty, and truth

Albert Einstein

But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for.

Paulo Coelho

The truth is that all of us attain the greatest success and happiness possible in this life whenever we use our native capacities to their greatest extent.

Dr. Smiley Blanton

Art is parasitic on life, just as criticism is parasitic on art.

Kenneth Tynan

The essential sadness is to go through life without loving. But it would be almost equally sad to leave this world without ever telling those you loved that you love them.

Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding the third
