Quote :: Attitude

"Whiners produce when they feel like it. Winners produce when they don't feel like it." - John Maxwell, Leadership, Summer 1995

"Many people quench the Spirit by being down in the mouth rather than rejoicing, by planning rather than praying, by murmuring rather than giving thanks, and by worrying instead of trusting in him who is faithful." - Cameron Townsend, Founder of Wycliffe Bible Translators

"There may be times when you will be sorry about something you said; sorry that you stayed too late, or sorry that you went so early; sorry that you won something, or lost; but all your life, you'll never be sorry you were kind." - Anonymous

"It is much easier to fix blame than to fix problems." - Kathleen Parker in the Orlando Sentinel

"What we see as we go through life always depends upon where we stand to look. Many a man who tries to talk as if he were standing on a mountain, shows by what he says that he is up to his eyes in the mud." - Billy Sunday in a sermon, 'Under the Sun,' from The Real Billy Sunday

"If successful, don't crow; if defeated, don't croak." - Samuel Chadwick (quoted in Interest, Jul/Aug 1994)

"The real danger in our situation lies in the fact that so many people see clearly what they are revolting from and so few see at all what they are revolting to." - Henry Emerson Fosdick

"From Pennsylvania State University comes confirmation of what you always suspected. People take longer to vacate a parking space when they know someone is waiting. Sociologist Barry Ruback and colleagues observed 200 departing drivers in a mall parking lot. When no one was waiting for them to leave, the drivers took an average of 26 seconds to back out of their spots. Bring a hovering driver on the scene, and that time increases to 31 seconds. Honk a horn and you're going to wait an excruciating 43 seconds. Ruback relates this behavior to our territorial instinct to defend our space. Sounds like pure contrariness to us!" - Health, September 1997
