attitude

A Quote by Rachel Louise Carson on attitude, destruction, indifference, plants, and reason

Our attitude towards plants is a singularly narrow one. If we see any immediate utility in a plant we foster it. If for any reason we find its presence undesirable or merely a matter of indifference, we may condemn it to destruction forthwith.

Rachel Carson (1907 - 1964)

A Quote by Peter Carbonara on attitude, belief, company, computers, experience, good, mind, past, people, and skill

You can't build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them? Over the past few years, a number of companies in a wide range of industries - from airlines to steel, computers to hotels - have asked themselves what separates their winners from their losers, good hires from bad, and they all arrived at the same answer: what people know is less important than who they are. Hiring, they believe, is not about finding people with the right experience; it's about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.

A Quote by Paul Valery on attitude and judgment

Our judgements judge us, and nothing reveals us, exposes our weaknesses, more ingeniously than the attitude of pronouncing upon our fellows.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on attitude, faults, judgment, and people

Many people excuse their own faults but judge other persons harshly. We should reverse this attitude by excusing others' shortcomings and by harshly examining our own.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on attitude, facts, failure, and success

Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on attitude, belief, confusion, desires, faith, god, prayer, and wisdom

God in His answers to prayer often says "Yes." Sometimes He says "Wait." Often He says "No." In any case, His will is done, and true faith is to believe that what happened has happened for the best. If one does not take that attitude, he is setting his personal desire against the wisdom of God. Oftentimes we confuse with faith merely that which we desire.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on art, attitude, creativity, facts, gratitude, kindness, laws, practice, and thankfulness

. . . a basic law: the more you practice the art of thankfulness, the more you have to be thankful for. This, of course, is a fact. Thankfulness does tend to reproduce in kind. The attitude of gratitude revitalizes the entire mental process by activating all other attitudes, thus stimulating creativity.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on absence, advice, attitude, church, circumstances, correction, facts, family, fear, force, friendship, giving, heart, leadership, listening, losing, love, past, pride, resentment, solution, and truth

In moments of truth, when meekness matters, other forces, including pride, flow into the chemistry of that moment. Take, for instance, the matter of receiving correct counsel, whether given by a spouse, a family member, a friend, or a Church leader. Often the counsel, even when spoken in love, is resisted by the recipient who - chained by pride - focuses instead upon the imperfections of the person giving the counsel. In another situation, the recipient may have much pride in the position he or she has already taken and refuse to deny himself or herself the continuation of that conduct, lifestyle, or attitude, which denial is at the heart of the solution. However, those who fear losing face cannot have His image in their countenances. In yet another circumstance, the recipient may, instead of listening to the counsel given, be nursing some past grievance upon which he or she would prefer to focus rather than the real issue at hand. Neither advice-giver nor circumstances can be perfect. Absent mutual meekness, the counsel given may not only go unheeded, but, in fact, may even be resented. Italics added.
