A Quote by E.F. Schumacher on attitude, environment, fulfillment, life, principles, wealth, and world

An attitude to life which seeks fulfillment in the single-minded pursuit of wealth - in short, materialism - does not fit into this world, because it contains within itself no limiting principle, while the environment in which it is placed is strictly limited.

E.F. Schumacher (1911 - 1977)

A Quote by Edward O. Sisson on acceptance, attitude, character, colors, failure, good, hope, lies, life, perfection, and soul

The deepest-lying and most pervasive part of character is disposition: it accompanies us everywhere, and shows itself in all we do. It is the attitude of the soul toward life, the way in which we accept our situation and our daily experiences. On the inner side it gives color and tone to our own conscious life: on the outer side it pervades and modifies our conduct toward others and our reactions to events. A good disposition is indispensable to good character, though of course not all of character; without it one cannot hope for perfection; even with it one may fail through lack of higher elements. It is a sort of foundation layer.

A Quote by Earl Nightingale on absence, attitude, change, and opportunity

A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.

A Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer on apathy, attitude, beginning, dignity, discovery, fidelity, god, good, meditation, patience, poverty, progress, spirituality, and vanity

Above all, it is not necessary that we should have any unexpected, extraordinary experiences in meditation. This can happen, but if it does not, it is not a sign that the meditation period has been useless. Not only at the beginning, but repeatedly, there will be times when we feel a great spiritual dryness and apathy, an aversion, even an inability to meditate. We dare not be balked by such experiences. Above all, we must not allow them to keep us from adhering to our meditation period with great patience and fidelity. It is, therefore, not good for us to take too seriously the many untoward experiences we have with ourselves in meditation. It is here that our old vanity and our illicit claims upon God may creep in by a pious detour, as if it were our right to have nothing but elevating and fruitful experiences, and as if the discovery of our own inner poverty were quite beneath our dignity. With that attitude, we shall make no progress.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906 - 1945)

A Quote by David. J. Schwartz, PhD on attitude, belief, leadership, learning, observation, respect, study, and worship

It is well to respect the leader. Learn from him. Observe him. Study him. But don't worship him. Believe you can surpass. Believe you can go beyond. Those who harbor the second-best attitude are invariably second-best doers.

A Quote by Dan Brent Burt on attitude, change, and service

If you could change anything about the way you approach selling, the thing that will make the biggest difference would be your attitude - your attitude toward your customers, your service, the benefits of your products, your employer, and your self.
