An aspect of our uniqueness is the view we have of ourselves. Nobody exists with the same idea we have of ourselves. With our first breath we begin developing our attitudes toward life. When we mature, at whatever age, we are simply a combination and accumulation of all that has occurred up to now. It seem as though we are taught our feelings towards just about those who instruct us have been... and those that instructed them...and so forth. What might be important could be other than what others think. One of our abilities, as human, is that of choice. We can choose how we feel towards stuff based on our personal experience.

An attitude of gratitude is all about being grateful for all things. Irrespective of whether you are comfortable or not, favourable or not or satisfied or not. It is equally being happy everyday, regardless of your state of health, condition or financial capacity/status. Yes of course, that's what having an attitude of gratitude really means. And in case you don't know. Even the scripture says in (PHILIPIANS 4 : 4) it says, rejoice in the lord always and again I say rejoice, let your joyfulness and happiness be made known to all. Now, that is to say evidently and of a truth, you've got to imbibe and portray an attitude of gratitude. No matter what you are going through presently. Lest you forget, an attitude of gratitude if/when imbibed and portrayed wholeheartedly, will determine your altitude at the long run. Oh! yes, resolving to become and remain grateful will surely pay you off sooner or later in life.

Anguish of mind has driven thousands to suicide; anguish of body, none. This proves that the health of the mind is of far more consequence to our happiness, than the health of the body, although both are deserving of much more attention than either of them receive.

Animals are always loyal and love you, whereas with children you never know where you are.
– Christina Foyle, The Times (1993)Rate it:
Animals are in possession of themselves; their soul is in possession of their body. But they have no right to their life, because they do not will it.
– Georg Wilhelm Friedrich HegelRate it:
Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.

Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.
– VoltaireRate it:
Animals like crows, owls or black cats are not ominous at all; it is the men's superstitious mind which is the inauspicious one!
– Mehmet Murat ildanRate it:
Animals that have more defense forms are also the most sensitive to attack, such as the turtles on their hulls or tracks, that when they leave their cocoons, they become one of the most beautiful insects. Such are human beings. They spend the rest of their lives in fear. Close their hearts made alveoli to the world in order to protect themselves and hoping that one day someone might free them.
– L.F. MagisterRate it:
Animals used to provide a lowlife way to kill and get away with it, as they do still, but, more intriguingly, for some people they are an aperture through which wounds drain. The scapegoat of olden times, driven off for the bystanders sins, has become a tender thing, a running injury. There, running away is me: hurt it and you are hurting me.

Animals, in their generation, are wiser than the sons of men but their wisdom is confined to a few particulars, and lies in a very narrow compass.

Animesh Roul, executive director of Society for the Study of Peace and Conflict, a New Delhi-based think tank, said the time had come for a change of approach for security agencies involved in countering groups such as IS. “I had someone ask me about IS camps and leaders in Bangladesh. Headquarters, organisations, structures are things of the past. The IS is a completely different beast,” he told Hindustan Times. “Bangladesh should be an area of focus for us despite the Dhaka government’s repeated denials of the presence of IS and Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). The infrastructure for radicalisation, such as madrasas, exists there and this presents an opportunity for IS and AQIS,” Roul said. “Besides, there is a lot of evidence of the presence of Bangladeshis from Britain and Canada in the ranks of the IS.”

Anne Frank became a symbol of the million murdered children, and I tell it to the father of Anne Frank, the diary of his daughter had a bigger impact than the Nuremberg trial.
– Simon WiesenthalRate it:
Anne Frank was a very lively girl and always wanted to draw a lot of people around her and wanted to be the centre of attention.
– Eva SchlossRate it:
Anne Frank wasn’t a star pupil. She was a likeable child. Sometimes I’d bump into her in the mornings on her way to school. Then she’d sometimes tell me stories that she’d made up together with her father. They were always really funny stories. She told me a lot about her father, but not much about her mother and sister. I also knew that she wanted to be a writer. Maybe she would have been…

Anne really liked chatting and gossiping. That's the same with me. Then I like reading and writing.

Anxiety about the future never profits; we feel no evil until it comes, and when we feel it, no counsel helps; wisdom is either too early or too late.
– RuckettRate it:
Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.
– Robert Albert BlochRate it:
Anxiety is interest paid on trouble before it is due.

Anxiety is the poison of human life; the parent of many sins and of more miseries.

Any historian of the literature of the modern age will take virtually for granted the adversary intention, the actually subversive intention, that characterizes modern writing -- he will perceive its clear purpose of detaching the reader from the habits of thought and feeling that the larger culture imposes, of giving him a ground and a vantage point from which to judge and condemn, and perhaps revise, the culture that produces him.

Under that test, juries can censor, suppress, and punish what they dont like, provided the matter relates to sexual impurity or has a tendency to excite lustful thoughts. This is community censorship in one of its worst forms. It creates a regime where in the battle between the literati and the Philistines, the Philistines are certain to win.

Anyone right here or out there who can be part of your progress and success story but, he or she is not willing to be part of it. Believe it or not, apparently he or she is as good as against your success or progress. You can say I said so. ~Emeasoba George
– Emeasoba GeorgeRate it:
Anyone that truly loves you is true to form/type i.e. he/she is loving you genuinely. But the reverse is the case with whoever that loves you untruly.

Anyone who acknowledges that winners never quit and quitters never win cannot be beaten for life. I mean, he or she will hardly give up on his or her faith until he or she wins or succeeds. Thus, never ever quit until you win or succeed. Because, surely winners never quit and quitters never win. And quitters cannot and will never win or succeed for life.
– Emeasoba GeorgeRate it:
Anyone who can be part of your progress & success story but he/she isn't willing to be part of it, then apparently he/she is as good as against your success. You can say I said so.

– George OrwellRate it:
Anyone who clings to the historically untrue - and thoroughly immoral - doctrine that violence never settles anything I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and the duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler would referee. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forgot this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and there freedoms.

Anyone who dares to speak/live positively notwithstanding his/her plight/ordeal and as well, he/she is always grateful to God for all things. Then, God will surely sooner or later make him/her a wonder to himself/herself/the world and even to the posterity ahead. Let's take king David as a case study. He (David) spoke/lived positively and all his lifetime he was often praiseful/grateful to God even against all odds. No wonder, God took him to be a man after his own heart and eventually he (God) made him (David) the most celebrated king of Israel. Moreover, even his son Solomon was not left out. As a matter of fact, God also made him (Solomon) a wonder by endowing him with divine wisdom/great insight and that's why he was able to write 3,000 proverbs and 1,005 songs. Above all, he (Solomon) became the richest/wisest king ever according to the scripture. Now, do you long to be a wonder all-round? If Yes, then go ahead and think/speak/live/act positively, also dare to be grateful to God for all things even against all odds. For, God is ever ready/capable to equally make you a wonder to your ownself/generation/the world/posterity ahead.

Anyone who has achieved immortality is never afraid to die someday. Yes! because his or her fame/legacy will surely outlive him/her. I've achieved immortality all over the internet via my thought-provoking quotes/motivations/inspirations. Oh! Yes, my thought-provoking quotes/words of wisdom will surely/eventually outlive me or rather live on after my demise. And guess what? I'm yet to achieve more of it (immortality) even beyond the internet setting through my up-coming books, my writing and speaking gift/potential.

Anyone who is full of God's grace will soar and keep on soaring like an eagle throughout his/her life time. Oh! yes, God's grace can take you to the highest altitude even to the zenith/peak of your career/business. So, ask/quest for the fullness of God's grace in all you do.
– Emeasoba GeorgeRate it:
Anyone who is hateful rather than loveful is like a bear with a sore head i.e. he/she is irritable/disgusting. So, be loveful and never hateful.

– Niels Henrik David BohrRate it:
Anyone who is passionate will never be fed up with whatever he or she does. Yes! because, the driving force of passion will keep on moving him/her forward and never backward. I mean, passion kindles and rekindles one's urge/desire all through his or her undertaking/career/profession until he or she decides to retire. Thus, you've got to be/remain passionate.
– Emeasoba GeorgeRate it:
Anyone who is reluctant to discover and fulfill his/her destiny will for life be going/running round in circles i.e. he/she will keep on working for a long time without achieving any meaningful/worthwhile success/achievement. Therefore, you've got to strive to discover and fulfill your God-given destiny. For, your destiny is meant to prevail over you.

Yes you heard me right, therefore, you've got to have a rethink and do live for/appreciate what today/present has to offer you and not at all what the past/yesterday has already taken away from you. Besides, the future ahead of you has a lot of goodies/positivities to offer you even more than whatever you think that you've lost in the past.
