We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.

and 90% how I react to it.

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 success,
than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, gift, 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 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 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.
- Charles Swindoll

Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition.
The immature mind often mistakes one for the other,

one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born -
