The Four Stages of Public Opinion
I (Just after publication): The novelty is absurd
and subversive of Religion and Morality.
The propounder both fool and knave.
II (Twenty years later): The Novelty is absolute Truth
and will yield a full and satisfactory
explanation of things in general -
The propounder a man of sublime genius and perfect virtue.
III (Forty years later): The Novelty won't explain
things in general after all, and therefore is a wretched failure.
The propounder a very ordinary person advertised by a clique.
IV (A century later): The Novelty a mixture of truth and error.
Explains as much as could reasonably be expected.
The propounder worthy of all honor
in spite of his share of human frailties,
as one who has added to the permanent possessions of science.
- Thomas Henry [T. H.] Huxley

He didn't come out of my belly, but my God,
I've made his bones, because I've attended to every meal,

I'm so proud of all those things.
But he is my biggest pride.
- John Lennon

All the Buddhas of all the ages have been

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

and that is our attitude.

and 90% how I react to it.
- Charles R. Swindoll

Memory diffuses fact.
- Diane Sawyer

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

to find the other: given the upper, to find the under side.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves
for they shall never cease to be amused.

That I choose to stand in this circle - I am proud.

Repressed anger still is anger, it just isn't expressed.
If you truly have no anger, you are blessed and joyful.
If you have repressed anger, know that you have anger,
you just haven't expressed that anger.
Go ahead, express your anger briefly,
pound pillows, scream, curse.
Then take a deep breath, and get over it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Blessed is he who expects nothing,
for he shall never be disappointed.
- Alexander Pope

If I choose to bless another person,
I will always end up feeling more blessed.
