Attitudes:

The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances ~ Martha Washington

Everything can be taken from a man but ... the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
~ Victor Frankl


Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same. ~Francesca Reigler


There are no menial jobs, only menial attitudes. ~William J. Bennett, The Book of Virtues


We awaken in others the same attitude of mind we hold toward them. ~Elbert Hubbard

Being a sex symbol has to do with an attitude, not looks. Most men think it's looks, most women know otherwise. ~Kathleen Turner

A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes. ~Hugh Downs


Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude. ~ Timothy Bentley

Life is 10 percent what you make it and 90 percent how you take it. ~ Irving Berlin


Thought is the sculptor who can create the person you want to be ~ Henry David Thoreau
