the longer i live, the more i realize the impact of my 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 relationship, a home. the remarkable thing is that we a choice everyday regarding the attitude that we embrace for the day. we cannot change our past, or 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 one string that we have and that is our attitude, i am convinced that life is 10 percent of what happens to me and 90 percent of how i react to it, and so it is with you - we are in charge of our attitudes. »charles swindoll.
I’m currently writing a paper on the First Amendment. The freedom of speech, expression, etc. I was thinking about it and it’s not really an amendment that gives us freedoms, it’s more of an amendment giving restrictions to government officials. What they can and cannot get us in trouble for. Maybe they’ll stop that dude from burning the Korans. …so much for freedoms, right?
