"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude
on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts.... 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 string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that
life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it.
And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes."
