Positive Attitude

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.  -Anthony J. D’Angelo, The College Blue Book

If you don’t get everything you want, think of the things you don’t get that you don’t want.  -Oscar Wilde

If you don’t think every day is a good day, just try missing one.  -Cavett Robert

It’s so hard when I have to, and so easy when I want to.  –Annie Gottlier

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.  -Winston Churchill

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


Do it anyway

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.
– Mother Teresa

Five factors of action

“The place of action [the body], the performer, the various senses, the many different kinds of endeavor, and ultimately the Supersoul—these are the five factors of action.”BG 18.14

The instruments of action are the senses, and by the senses the soul acts in various ways. For each and every action there is a different endeavor. But all one’s activities depend on the will of the Supersoul, who is seated within the heart as a friend.

So, we are responsible for our good or bad actions.
