Attitude quotes
Attitude
Whenever a fellow tells me he is bipartisan, I know he's going to vote against me.

- Truman, Harry S
It is precisely the purpose of the public opinion generated by the press to make the public incapable of judging, to insinuate into it the attitude of someone irresponsible, uninformed.

- Benjamin, Walter
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.

- White, Elwyn Brooks
My attitude toward punctuation is that it ought to be as conventional as possible. The game of golf would lose a good deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green. You ought to be able to show that you can do it a good deal better than anyone else with the regular tools before you have a license to bring in your own improvements.

- Hemingway, Ernest
Opera, n. A play representing life in another world whose inhabitants have no speech but song, no motions but gestures, and no postures but attitudes.

- Ambrose Bierce
You can measure a programmer's perspective by noting his attitude on the continuing viability of Fortran.

- Alan Perlis
The men who had hated [the book], and had not particularly loved Helv┌tius, flocked round him now. Voltaire forgave him all injuries, intentional or unintentional.'What a fuss about an omelette!'he had exclaimed when he heard of the burning. How abominably unjust to persecute a man for such an airy trifle as that!'I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it,'was his attitude now.

- S. G. Tallentyre
Sometimes I'm so sweet even I can't stand it.

- Andrews, Julie
One's destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.

- Miller, Henry
A pessimist and an optimist, so much the worse; so much the better.

- La Fontaine, Jean De
The compulsion to do good is an innate American trait. Only North Americans seem to believe that they always should, may, and actually can choose somebody with whom to share their blessings. Ultimately this attitude leads to bombing people into the acceptance of gifts.

- Illich, Ivan
You are more likely to act yourself into feelings, than feel yourself into action.

- Brunner, Dr. Jerome
Don't introduce me to that man! I want to go on hating him, and I can't hate a man whom I know.

- Lamb, Charles
Our attitude toward our own culture has recently been characterized by two qualities, braggadocio and petulance. Braggadocio -- empty boasting of American power, American virtue, American know-how -- has dominated our foreign relations now for some decades. Here at home -- within the family, so to speak -- our attitude to our culture expresses a superficially different spirit, the spirit of petulance. Never before, perhaps, has a culture been so fragmented into groups, each full of its own virtue, each annoyed and irritated at the others.

- Boorstin, Daniel J.
It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.

- James, William
Wealth is an inborn attitude of mind, like poverty. The pauper who has made his pile may flaunt his spoils, but cannot wear them plausibly.

- Cocteau, Jean
SAFETY-CLUTCH, n. A mechanical device acting automatically to prevent the fall of an elevator, or cage, in case of an accident to the hoisting apparatus. Once I seen a human ruin In an elevator-well, And his members was bestrewin' All the place where he had fell. And I says, apostrophisin' That uncommon woful wreck: "Your position's so surprisin' That I tremble for your neck!" Then that ruin, smilin'sadly And impressive, up and spoke: "Well, I wouldn't tremble badly, For it's been a fortnight broke." Then, for further comprehension Of his attitude, he begs I will focus my attention On his various arms and legs -- How they all are contumacious; Where they each, respective, lie; How one trotter proves ungracious, T'other one an _alibi_. These particulars is mentioned For to show his dismal state, Which I wasn't first intentioned To specifical relate. None is worser to be dreaded That I ever have heard tell Than the gent's who there was spreaded In that elevator-well. Now this tale is allegoric -- It is figurative all, For the well is metaphoric And the feller didn't fall. I opine it isn't moral For a writer-man to cheat, And despise to wear a laurel As was gotten by deceit. For'tis Politics intended By the elevator, mind, It will boost a person splendid If his talent is the kind. Col. Bryan had the talent (For the busted man is him) And it shot him up right gallant Till his head begun to swim. Then the rope it broke above him And he painful come to earth Where there's nobody to love him For his detrimented worth. Though he's livin'none would know him, Or at leastwise not as such. Moral of this woful poem: Frequent oil your safety-clutch. Porfer Poog

- Ambrose Bierce
Kindness is more than deeds. It is an attitude, an expression, a look, a touch. It is anything that lifts another person.

- Strait, C. Neil
You cannot tailor make your situation in life, but you can tailor make your attitudes to fit those situations.

- Ziglar, Zig
Though I might travel afar, I will meet only what I carry with me, for every man is a mirror. We see only ourselves reflected in those around us. Their attitudes and actions are only a reflection of our own. The whole world and its condition has its counter parts within us all. Turn the gaze inward. Correct yourself and your world will change.

- Zambucka, Kirsten
