Who said it…

  • “Absorb yourself in a magnificent challenge.” -Tommy Caldwell
  • “The best of us aren’t too good.” -Wilford Woodruff
  • “Things turn out best for folks who make the best of the way things turn out.” -John Wooden
  • “How you are in this moment in history is really important and all of that small stuff really matters.  All of the big things we are longing for are only made up of a lot of small, personal, radical choices.” -Adrienne Marie Brown
  • “Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?” -T.S. Eliot
  • “You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.” -Dr. Seuss
  • “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, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, 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 every day regarding the attitude we 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 the one string we have, and that is our attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.” -Charles Swindoll
