Attitude!!

I tend to be leery of accepting at face value what religious people say, but I couldn't let these quotes pass without notice. I don't know much about the author, Charles Swindoll, other than that he is an Evangelical Christian pastor, author, educator, and radio preacher, and that 'Christianity Today' named him one of the top 25 most influential preachers of the past 50 years (1956-2006). So, I stand bethind this quotes only.
A family is a place where principles are hammered and honed on the anvil of everyday living.

Alleged "impossibilities" are opportunities for our capacities to be stretched.

Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.

The difference between something good and something great is attention to detail.

The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

The secret of living a life of excellence is merely a matter of thinking thoughts of excellence. Really, it's a matter of programming our minds with the kind of information that will set us free.

The swift wind of compromise is a lot more devastating than the sudden jolt of misfortune.

We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.

Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitudes toward life. The longer I live the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it.
