The first organization whose atmosphere and attitude will tolerate the use of nanomation technology will be the first organization to swallow its market whole.

Jonar Nader

The greatest discovery of any generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.

William James

The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.

James Truslow Adams

The liberal holds that he is true to the republic when he is true to himself. (It may not be as cozy an attitude as it sounds.) He greets with enthusiasm the fact of the journey, as a dog greets a man's invitation to take a walk. And he acts in the dog's way too, swinging wide, racing ahead, doubling back, covering many miles of territory that the man never traverses, all in the spirit of inquiry and the zest for truth. He leaves a crazy trail, but he ranges far beyond the genteel old party he walks with and he is usually in a better position to discover a skunk.

E. B. White

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Charles R. Swindoll

The postmodern reply to the modern consists of recognizing that the past, since it cannot really be destroyed, because its destruction leads to silence, must be revisited: but with irony, not innocently. I think of the postmodern attitude as that of a man who loves a very cultivated woman and knows he cannot say to her, I love you madly, because he knows that she knows (and that she knows that he knows) that these words have already been written by Barbara Cartland. Still, there is a solution. He can say, As Barbara Cartland would put it, I love you madly.

Umberto Eco

The purely agitation attitude is not good enough for a detailed consideration of a subject.

Jawaharlal Nehru

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

Charles R. Swindoll

The remarkable thing we have is a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

Charles R. Swindoll

The uncompromising attitude is more indicative of an inner uncertainty than a deep conviction. The implacable stand is directed more against the doubt within than the assailant without.

Eric Hoffer

There can be no growth without a change. There is equally no sustainable change without a growth. This implies, growth and change are intermingling. But, a change is never easy initially. It often comes with anxiety, loss and sometimes pains. Nevertheless, when a change is given a chance, its end result is most times worth the pains that come with it. So, dare to pave way for a positive change. Better still, an attitudinal change. Because a change that begins with ones attitude is always effectual and perpetual too. Therefore, this is a call to imbibe an attitudinal change spirit, whoever you are and wherever you are.

Emeasoba George

There can be no Positive result from a Negative attitude. Think Positive. Live Positive.

RVM

There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.

W. Clement Stone

There is more than a verbal tie between the words common, community, and communication.... Try the experiment of communicating, with fullness and accuracy, some experience to another, especially if it be somewhat complicated, and you will find your own attitude toward your experience changing.

John Dewey

There is too much sour grapes for my taste in the present American attitude. The time to denounce the bankers was when we were all feeding off their gold plate; not now! At present they have not only my sympathy but my preference. They are the last representatives of our native industries.

Edith Wharton

Today's students can put dope in their veins or hope in their brains. ... If they can conceive it and believe it, they can achieve it. They must know it is not their aptitude but their attitude that will determine their altitude.

Jesse Louis Jackson

True Leadership is meant to be approached/portrayed via positive thinking, speaking, attitude, actions, programs, policies, projects and not at all the other way round.

Emeasoba George

Ultimately, contentment is more a shift in attitude than a change in circumstances.

Linda Dillow, "Calm My Anxious Heart"

We can gradually grow into any condition we desire, provided we first make ourselves in habitual mental attitude the person who corresponds to those conditions.

Thomas Troward

We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

Charles R. Swindoll

We have among us a class of mammon worshippers, whose one test of conservatism or radicalism is the attitude one takes with respect to accumulated wealth. Whatever tends to preserve the wealth of the wealthy is called conservatism, and whatever favors anything else, no matter what is called socialism.

Richard T. Ely

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances - to choose one's own way.

Victor Frankl

What it means to think positively is just figure on i.e. having an attitude or a lifestyle of always expecting something positive to happen or to be the case. Have you been thinking negatively rather than positively? If Yes, then you've got to be thinking positively and never negatively. For, positive thinking gives rise to positive results/outcomes. But, the reverse is the case with negative thinking.

Emeasoba George

What the world needs is not dogma but an attitude of scientific inquiry combined with a belief that the torture of millions is not desirable, whether inflicted by Stalin or by a Deity imagined in the likeness of the believer.

Bertrand Russell

When we create something, we always create it first in a thought form. If we are basically positive in attitude, expecting and envisioning pleasure, satisfaction and happiness, we will attract and create people, situations, and events which conform to our positive expectations.
