attitude

A Quote by Pat Riley on adversity and attitude

Shoulda, coulda, and woulda won't get it done. In attacking adversity, only a positive attitude, alertness, and regrouping to basics can launch a comeback.

A Quote by Katherine Mansfield on appearance, attitude, change, and life

Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different. Life would undergo a change of appearance because we ourselves had undergone a change of attitude.

A Quote by Brian Tracy on attitude, change, and control

You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

A Quote by William George Jordan on attitude, courage, day, dignity, inspiration, learning, life, mistakes, performance, purpose, regret, satisfaction, soul, strength, time, and tolerance

Life is simply time given to man to learn how to live. Mistakes are always part of learning. The real dignity of life consists in cultivating a fine attitude towards our own mistakes and those of others. It is the fine tolerance of a fine soul. Man becomes great, not through never making mistakes, but by profiting by those he does make; by being satisfied with a single rendition of a mistake, not encoring it into a continuous performance; by getting from it the honey of new, regenerating inspiration with no irritating sting of morbid regret; by building better to-day because of his poor yesterday; and by rising with renewed strength, finer purpose and freshened courage every time he falls.

A Quote by William James on attitude, character, and thought

I have often thought that the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it came upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: "This is the real me!"

A Quote by William James on agreement, attitude, change, departure, evil, fear, good, men, and simplicity

Much of what we call evil is due entirely to the way men take the phenomenon. It can so often be converted into a bracing and tonic good by a simple change of the sufferer's inner attitude from one of fear to one of fight; its string can so often depart and turn into a relish when, after vainly seeking to shun it, we agree to face about and bear it . . .

It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.

A Quote by Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. on attitude, discrimination, doubt, history, nations, practicality, romance, sex, and women

There can be no doubt that our Nation has had a long and unfortunate history of sex discrimination. Traditionally, such discrimination was rationalized by an attitude of "romantic paternalism" which, in practical effect, put women, not on a pedestal, but in a cage.

A Quote by Wilfred A. Peterson on art, attitude, cheerfulness, confidence, courage, defeat, enthusiasm, failure, faith, goals, honesty, humility, imagination, individuality, joy, life, love, optimism, patience, problems, relatives, serenity, success, pre

The Art of Success . . . Success is ninety-nine percent mental attitude. It calls for love, joy, optimism, confidence, serenity, poise, faith, courage, cheerfulness, imagination, initiative, tolerance, honesty, humility, patience, and enthusiasm. . . . Success is having the courage to meet failure without being defeated. It is refusing to let present loss interfere with your long-range goal. . . . Success is relative and individual and personal. It is your answer to the problem of making your minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years add up to a great life.
